November 22, 2010 — Heavy snow has been blanketing parts of northern Ontario for the past few days and now another 15 cm is possible for some areas.

Additional snowfall amounts expected through Wednesday

There's still a month left until the official start of winter, but you wouldn't know it in northern Ontario.

A large system moved into the region last Thursday bringing heavy snow with it. Red Lake recorded around 20 cm of snow, while areas farther east including Geraldton, Kapuskasing and Timmins saw closer to 10 cm.

If that wasn't already enough, another system moving in from the U.S., is set to bring another 10 to 15 cm to areas north and west of Wawa through Wednesday. There is also a risk of freezing rain through the overnight hours on Monday.

While northern Ontario is looking more like winter, the southern parts of the province are feeling more like spring. Temperatures were sitting in the mid teens on Monday. The entire province is expected to reach more seasonal values by the end of the week.
