April 23, 2011 — Just one week after Kapuskasing received a heavy dumping of snow, a Colorado low is bringing another round of snow to parts of northern Ontario.

Kapuskasing was recently buried under more than 30 cm of snow, and more could be on the way

The low brought heavy rain and even thundershowers to the lower Great Lakes, but temperatures were just cold enough northeast of Lake Superior to generate wet snowfall, according to a special weather statement issued by Environment Canada.

The Kapuskasing, Wawa, Timmins, Sault Ste. Marie, Kirkland Lake and Chapleau areas were all expected to see snowfall amounts of up to 10 cm, with even higher localized amounts expected Friday night into Saturday.

By early Saturday morning, Timmins had received 2 cm, Wawa 4 cm and Chapleau 9 cm.

Unseasonably cool temperatures and even snow have been big stories throughout Ontario this spring.

Meteorologists say the Pacific Ocean phenomenon called La Niņa is to blame.
