Snow associated with an approaching Colorado Low is expected to advance into portions of Northern Ontario late Thursday and continue into Friday. Total snowfall accumulations of 10 to 15 cm are possible by late Friday.


Gusty easterly winds to 60 km/h will also create areas of blowing snow giving reduced visibility.

At this point, it appears that the heaviest snowfall associated with this weather system will remain south of the international border where winter storm warnings are in effect.
