Early spring storm expected over the next few days

Significant snowfall accumulations are possible by the time snow begins to ease on Thursday

Get ready! An early spring storm is expected to bring strong winds, rain and the potential for significant snow tomorrow night through Thursday.

A Colorado low is expected to begin affecting the region Tuesday night. Precipitation is expected to begin as rain changing to snow Wednesday morning. The snow, which may be heavy at times, is expected to continue through Wednesday night easing through the day Thursday. Significant snowfall accumulations are possible by the time snow begins to ease on Thursday.

Strong easterly winds will develop Tuesday night with wind gusts up to 70 km/h. The winds will ease on Wednesday afternoon.

Power outages will be possible. Travel may become hazardous due to accumulating snow and reduced visibility.

Confidence is low, as there remains a high degree of uncertainty with the low's track, which will have significant impacts on temperatures, snowfall amounts and when rain will transition to snow. Warnings will be issued as the event draws nearer.

  •  North Bay - West Nipissing,
