 Blowing snow, ice pellets and freezing rain are all in the forecast today. Environment Canada Meteorologist Geoff Coulson detailed the ‘massive’ storm system moving through the area.

“This certainly looks like a big one. We’re watching the system very closely. A winter storm warning is in effect across the district. We're expecting a fair amount of snow with this system, but the wind and freezing rain are big factors, as well. There already is some freezing rain in the area, and that will transition into snow right across the area. The system is very slow moving, and will become intense over the next 24 hours. It’s a massive system,” he said.

Coulson noted that residents can expect beween 10-15 centimetres of snow today, with the potential of 10 centimetres tonight. Coulson noted that the snow will likely continue into tomorrow afternoon, with the potential for another 1-2 centimetres.

Coulson notes that, if residents have any travel plans, they may want to delay them.

“Travel around Lake of the Woods and into The West, that will be where the worst of it is. East will be more rain, a little more mild. Certainly around the Lake of the Woods area, we’ll be seeing some very winter-like travel conditions,” he said.

Drivers are urged to drive according to the conditions. For the latest weather alerts, download the KenoraLive App.
