To the west of us, old man winter is making an early appearance.
A special weather statement has been issued for the Kenora and Dryden areas.
Steve Schuster from Environment Canada says the storm system will last for at least the next 24 hours.
“Currently it is situated over southern Minnesota and it is tracking towards Lake Superior. So all of northwestern Ontario will be on the cold side of this system, there will be snow in the northwest, and closer to Lake Superior may have to deal with some freezing rain and ice pellets as well.”
Schuster says Kenora can expect as much as 10 centimeters of snow, maybe even more depending on the storm track.
