A special weather statement is in effect for parts of the region. Environment Canada is warning of a snow storm making its way towards northwestern Ontario.
Meteorologist Gerald Cheng explained.
"A big fall storm is coming towards northern Ontario and it's bring snow for the first time for a lot of people. It's accumulating snow, so this is quite a change from what we experienced before," he said.
Cheng explained how the week could look for residents.
"The bulk of the snow will come on Wednesday. Really that's the worst day of the week. As we head into Wednesday night there is still some light snow, so a couple more centimetres after the 10 to 20 that everybody will be getting. By Thursday the system will slowly exit, but still behind the system on Wednesday we could get some flurries," he said.
Temperatures are also expected to stay below seasonal.
Cheng also reminded residents with travel plans to pay attention to conditions.
"Be careful out there on Wednesday. If you're headed east along highway 17 or 11 you're looking at poor visibility during parts of the day on Wednesday," he said.
Residents should also be on the lookout for snowfall warning as the system moves closer to the region.
