Snowstorm Heading Our Way

By Tim Davidson Nov 9, 2022 | 9:11 AM

The first major snow event of the year could be coming our way.

A Special Weather Statement has been issued for the Kenora area, and a Winter Storm Watch has been issued for the Rainy River District.

Dave Rogers is a meteorologist with Environment Canada and says snow should start falling tomorrow afternoon.

“A low pressure system that’s developing over the US Rockies right now, and it’s going to move over Colorado, heading towards Lake Superior on Thursday, so the snow should begin Thursday afternoon,” states Rogers.

Rogers adds that the amount of snow we get will depend on the storm track.

“It’s going to become heavy late in the afternoon into the evening…tapering off a little bit after midnight.  Total snowfall amounts look to be about 10 to 20 centimeters and a lot of that will fall Thursday night.”

Rogers says areas to the south of Kenora like Sioux Narrows, Rainy River, and east of Dryden might see anywhere from 15 to 25 centimeters of snow.

He adds some that could fall in the form of freezing rain or ice pellets initially.
