Northwestern Ontario could see flurries for Thanksgiving
The pink highlighted area indicates a rain-snow mix for those regions within it, while areas within the green section are to expect strictly rain.
A low pressure system, known as an Alberta Clipper
, sailing southeast from the Prairie provinces is expected to bring an area of rain or a rain-wet snow mix into some parts of northwestern Ontario Monday afternoon through Tuesday morning.
The current system indicates that areas north of Dryden are likely to see the most snowfall. Weather Network meteorologist, Monica Vaswani says that temperatures will most likely dictate how much precipitation will fall as snow, as warmer temperatures could allow for a rain-snow mix.
"Environment Canada has indicated that upwards of 15 cm of snow is possible in areas such as Pickle Lake by Tuesday morning," says Vaswani. "Smaller amounts of approximately 5 cm may be possible in regions further south such as Red Lake."
Residents can expect dangerous road conditions as early as Monday afternoon. Motorists are advised to drive with extra caution
while travelling to-and-from holiday celebrations.
