You may want to gas up the snowblower and get the shovels ready.

Thunder Bay could see up to 50 centimetres of snow by Wednesday night while other areas in the region such as Dryden could see 30 centimetres.

Blowing snow and white outs are expected as winds will gust up to 60 kilometres per hour.


Environment Canada’s Kelly Hobelman explains things are just getting started.

“What we’re looking at is for the entire area, generally five to fifteen centimetres every twelve hours, is likely to fall over the next thirty-six hours or so.”

Snowfall will be heaviest in the Thunder Bay area as a winter storm warning is in effect and freezing rain is in the forecast for Monday into Tuesday.

Meantime, Dryden is sitting under snowfall warning with Fort Frances under weather a weather advisory for snowfall.

Kenora has no warnings or advisories, but some snow is expected to hit the area later Monday.
