INTERMITTENT SNOW HAS BEEN FALLING ACROSS MUCH OF NORTHWESTERN ONTARIO TODAY AND WILL MAKE ITS WAY INTO REGIONS NORTH OF LAKE SUPERIOR TONIGHT.

A FEW CENTIMETRES OF SNOW FELL IN MANY REGIONS WEST OF SUPERIOR TODAY WITH FURTHER AMOUNTS OF 5 TO 10 CM EXPECTED TONIGHT FOR SIMILAR REGIONS.
 
IT WILL GRADUALLY TAPER OFF IN NORTHWESTERN ONTARIO ON MONDAY WITH SEVERAL MORE CENTIMETRES POSSIBLE.

AS THE LOW SLOWLY INTENSIFIES MONDAY AND MONDAY NIGHT, SNOW WILL SPREAD ACROSS MUCH OF NORTHEASTERN ONTARIO.
