More rain and possible flurries are expected over the weekend across northwestern Ontario. Showers can be expected in Kenora and Dryden with a high of 7 today. Sioux Lookout can expect rain and a high of 6.

Environment Canada Meteorologist Gerald Cheng detailed the upcoming forecast for the region.

“It looks like it’s going to be grey, cloudy and rainy over the weekend. We’ve got a system moving through with unsettled weather. As we head into tonight and tomorrow morning, there’s also a chance of flurries.”

However, Cheng says that the rain and flurries are expected to let up a bit by the start of next week.

“As we head into next week, it looks to be more dry, but there’s still a lot of cloud coverage in the area. Not much sun in the forecast.”

Cheng says the warmer-than-normal temperatures in the area are expected to stick around. He adds that residents worried about dropping temperatures and more snow should be excited about the upcoming forecast.

“It looks to stay seasonal or slightly-above seasonal temperatures as we get out of October and into early November, and we’re not seeing much snow on the way. It’s some good news for everyone.”

Highs between 4 and 6 are expected in the Kenora, Dryden and Sioux Lookout areas on Monday and Tuesday, with some sun later on in the week.
