The same low pressure system that's been blasting the Prairies for much of this week made its way into northwestern Ontario, bringing wintery conditions with it.
Environment Canada issued a special weather statement during the evening hours on Thursday warning of heavy snow. And some places have been seeing just that.
So far, Red Lake has recorded nearly 20 cm of snow. Areas farther east including Geraldton, Kapuskasing and Timmins are expected to see around 10 cm through Saturday. Brief periods of freezing rain are also possible.
The system will begin to lose its punch as it moves east making way for clear, but cold conditions on Saturday.
Areas in southern Ontario saw come flurry activity on Thursday afternoon, but no accumulations were reported.
