Satellite image of North America

Could this be the last of winter? Probably not. Get the shovels ready folks, Mother Nature is going to sock it to us.

The satellite image  from this morning shows the storm tracking into the Great Lakes.

Snow at times heavy today and tonight.

Here’s what Environment Canada is saying…

A developing weather system will track towards Ontario today. Snow associated with this system has spread into Northeastern Ontario. Snowfall warnings have been issued east of Lake Superior from Montreal River to Kirkland Lake where 15 or more cm is likely and the heaviest snow will occur this evening.

Snowfall amounts are forecast just below warning criteria for the Timmins region but a snowfall warning for 15 cm in 12 hours is possible.

For areas from Sault Ste Marie through to North Bay and southward the snow may be heavy at times today as well. Total snowfall amounts across this swath are likely to be in the 10 to 15 cm range by Friday morning. This same area will see a transition to rain overnight, with a risk of brief freezing rain during the transition. Rainfall amounts with this low pressure system will be in the 10 to 20 millimetre range. Rainfall warnings are unlikely however the situation will be monitored.
