A WIDE VARIETY OF WEATHER OVER NORTHERN ONTARIO FOR THE NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS.

A LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM TRACKING FROM MICHIGAN THROUGH SOUTHERN ONTARIO TONIGHT COMBINED WITH A SECOND LOW MOVING FROM MANITOBA INTO NORTHERN ONTARIO IS BRINGING A WIDE VARIETY OF WEATHER TO NORTHERN ONTARIO OVER THE NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS.

2. 10 TO 15 CM OF SNOW IS FORECAST TONIGHT FOR AREAS NEAR AND NORTH OF QUETICO PROVINCIAL PARK.  SNOW WILL BEGIN THIS EVENING AND CONTINUE THROUGH EARLY TUESDAY MORNING.  THE HIGHEST AMOUNTS WILL LIKELY BE NEAR THE MINNESOTA BORDER, BUT ARE EXPECTED TO REMAIN BELOW ENVIRONMENT CANADA'S SNOWFALL WARNING CRITERIA OF 15 CM IN 12 HOURS.

3. AS THE WARM FRONT PUSHES FARTHER TO THE NORTH, A BAND OF FREEZING RAIN CAN BE EXPECTED TO MOVE INTO REGIONS ALONG LAKE SUPERIOR AND GEORGIAN BAY EARLY TUESDAY MORNING, THEN ALL THE WAY NORTH TO KAPUSKASING AND TIMMINS BY TUESDAY AFTERNOON.  THE EXACT TIMING AND AMOUNT OF FREEZING RAIN WILL DEPEND ON THE DEVELOPMENT AND POSITION OF THE WARM FRONT.  THERE REMAINS SOME UNCERTAINTY IN THE POSITION AND INTENSITY OF THE WARM FRONT.  ENVIRONMENT CANADA IS MONITORING THIS SYSTEM CLOSELY AND WILL ISSUE FURTHER STATEMENTS AND WARNINGS AS NECESSARY.
