ENVIRONMENT CANADA
***************************
Special weather statement in effect for:
    •    Timmins - Cochrane - Iroquois Falls
    •    Chapleau - Missinaibi Lake
    •    Gogama - Foleyet

Widespread snowfall is expected today.

Snow has begun over the area and will become heavier through the day. An additional 5 to 10 cm of snow is expected by early this evening. The heaviest snow is expected to fall later this morning for areas near Lake Superior and during the afternoon for areas closer to the Ontario-Quebec border. Visibilities may be suddenly reduced in heavier snow.

This snow is associated with a developing low pressure system that will track across northeastern Ontario later today. Snow will taper to scattered flurries this evening as the low pressure system moves into Quebec.

Environment and Climate Change Canada is closely monitoring the situation and will issue additional messages as required.

Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to ec.cpio-tempetes-ospc-storms.ec@canada.ca or tweet reports using #ONStorm.
