Environment Canada has issued a blowing snow advisory for Kenora, Grassy Narrows, Whitedog, Sioux Narrows, Nestor Falls, Morson, Dryden, Vermilion Bay, Ignace, English River, Savant Lake, Sturgeon Lake, Sioux Lookout, Eastern Lac Seul and the surrounding communities.

Strong winds and local blowing snow in brief bursts of heavy snow today.

Very strong winds today gusting up to 70 km/h and brief bursts of locally heavy snow will result in areas of blowing snow and significantly reduced visibilities at times. While snowfall accumulations are forecast to be minor, only 1 or 2 cm, local blowing snow will still occur at times in the heavier bursts of snow.

Conditions are expected to improve later this afternoon as winds ease and any precipitation slowly comes to an end.

Travel is expected to be hazardous due to reduced visibility in some locations. Be prepared to adjust your driving with changing road conditions.
