An Alberta clipper bringing a general 10 to 15 cm snowfall.

Another Alberta clipper over Central Minnesota will track across Wisconsin tonight then across Michigan and Northern Lake Huron into Southern Quebec on Sunday.

This disturbance has a large area of snow with it which has spread across the regions as expected.

Total snowfall amounts of 10 to 15 cm are expected in many areas from this disturbance tonight in areas near Lake Superior and by Sunday evening over Northeastern Ontario.

Motorists should expect hazardous winter driving conditions from accumulating snow on untreated highways and lower visibility in areas of heavier snow.

A very cold air mass delivered fresh from the Arctic will establish itself across Northern Ontario in the wake of this disturbance on Sunday.

Wind chill warnings in effect for much of Northwestern Ontario may be extended eastward into some of the regions as required.

The public is advised to monitor future forecasts and warnings as warnings may be required or extended.

"Motorists should expect driving conditions to deteriorate and become hazardous at times from accumulating snow on untreated highways and lower visibility in areas of heavier snow."

Well that statement pretty well covers our area highways? Transfield, are you reading this? It's going to snow, so get the plows and sanders out early enough to keep the roads in a semi good condition instead of letting them deteriorate to barely passable.

Get Real!

If they do what you suggest it will cost money and they won't satisfy the greed of the shareholders.

In other words don't even attempt to drive, typical for Northern Ontario, remember vote PC or Liberal next election because they are for the people.
