SPECIAL WEATHER
STATEMENT

ENVIRONMENT CANADA

*************************
Special weather statement issued for Searchmont - Montreal River Harbour - Batchawana Bay - Sault Ste. Marie - St. Joseph Island - Greater Sudbury and vicinity - Elliot Lake - Ranger Lake - Blind River - Thessalon - Espanola - Killarney - Manitoulin Island

Snow over Northwestern Ontario Tuesday night and risk of freezing rain Wednesday morning over portions of Northeastern Ontario.

A low pressure system currently located over South Dakota is forecast to track slowly southeastwards.

Two to 4 cm of snow accumulation is expected over Northwestern Ontario tonight and Tuesday except 5 cm over the Thunder Bay area tonight due to the lake enhancement.

Based on the current computer guidance, the low pressure system may reach Iowa by late Tuesday, then track northeast towards the Great Lakes.

10 cm of snowfall will be expected over areas near the Minnesota border Tuesday night.

Over Northeastern Ontario south of a line from Searchmont eastwards to North Bay, when the warm front associated with the low approaches, precipitation will start as light snow mixed with ice pellets then change to freezing rain early Wednesday morning.

However, there is much uncertainty in the track and development of this low system.

If the system track north, significant snow accumulation will spread farther north.

Environment Canada will continue to monitor the development of this system closely and update information accordingly or issue watches and warnings if the confidence becomes higher.

Please monitor the latest forecasts and warnings from Environment Canada at www.weatheroffice.gc.ca.
