THUNDER BAY -- The City of Thunder Bay is under a winter weather travel advisory, with up to 20 centimetres of snow expected through Wednesday morning. 

According to Environment Canada, between 10 to 20 centimetres of snow could begin, with it expected to develop on Tuesday afternoon and become heavy at times during the evening. 

Lesser amounts of snow may fall on the North Shore toward Marathon. 

"The snow may mix with or transition to rain for a time along the northern shore of Lake Superior before changing back to snow by early Wednesday morning. Snow is expected to taper off Wednesday morning," the advisory reads. 

"Motorists should expect hazardous winter driving conditions and adjust travel plans accordingly. Slow down driving in slippery conditions. Watch for taillights ahead and maintain a safe following distance. Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become icy and slippery."
