Residents hoping that the mild weather that the district was enjoying prior to Monday’s storm would return, are out of luck.
Environment Canada Meteorologist, Geoff Coulson, details the upcoming weather that residents can expect.
“I think we’re seeing a real shift in our temperature patterns. Before the recent storm system, we had a pretty long stretch of mild weather throughout northwestern Ontario. The conditions were much milder than normal for that time of the year. Now that the system has passed through, with those high winds snapping around in the district, we’ve started to see colder than usual air in the area. That will be with us for the next little while,” he said.
Coulson noted that Sunday is forecasted to have a high of minus 3, but the temperatures are expected to drop again early next week.
Monday’s snowstorm broke records in the area. Kenora saw just over 30 centimetres of snow, Vermilion Bay received 34 centimetres and Sioux Lookout had 29 centimetres fall.
