THUNDER BAY – The calendar may say it’s spring, but that’s not stopping winter from making one final appearance across the region.
Environment Canada has issued a winter storm warning for the city of Thunder Bay and surrounding region.
A weather system is moving in from the southwest and snow is expected to begin early this afternoon.
Accumulations of 20 to 30 centimetres may occur along the northeastern shores of Lake Superior and wind gusts as strong as 50 kilometres an hour may cause localized blowing snow.
Snowfall accumulations for the city of Thunder Bay may be less, with 10 centimetres predicted throughout Sunday and into Monday night.
Road conditions may become hazardous because of accumulating snow and drivers are advised to adjust travel plans and exercise caution while travelling along area roadways and highways.
