Snowfall warning: Up to 25 cm possible over next two days

Environment Canada warns of heavy snow, falling at a rate of up to 4 cm/h at its heaviest, starting tonight and continuing to Thursday morning

Spring might be in the air, but winter isn’t done with us yet. Environment Canada has issued a snowfall warning for Greater Sudbury and the area, starting tonight and into early Thursday morning.

Total snowfall amounts of between 15 and 25 cm is expected, particularly north of Sudbury and Elliot Lake, the warning reads. At its heaviest, the snow is expected to fall at a rate of between 2 to 4 cm per hour.

“Snow is expected to move into the region later tonight and continue through the day Wednesday and into Wednesday night,” the statement reads. “For areas farther south along the Highway 17 corridor, including Greater Sudbury and Elliot Lake, precipitation may be a mix of rain and snow, with a changeover to all snow not likely until Wednesday evening.”

Snowfall amounts in the Sudbury and Elliot Lake areas could be lower as a result.

Precipitation should taper off Thursday morning, Environment Canada said.
