Snowfall warnings as winter storm continues, here is what to expect
SUDBURY -- As snow brought in by the latest winter storm continues to fall across northeastern Ontario, Environment Canada issues several more snowfall warnings.
Poor road conditions have resulted in school bus cancellations for many communities Thursday and a significant amount of snow will continue to fall before tapering off into flurries by the evening.
Low visibility and blowing snow is likely to create hazardous travel conditions.
Environment Canada says the heaviest snowfall amounts will happen near the Ontario-Quebec border.

- Fraserdale - Pledger Lake
- Kapuskasing - Hearst - Smooth Rock Falls
- Kirkland Lake - Englehart
- Little Abitibi - Kesagami Lake
- North Bay - Powassan – Mattawa (expecting 20 – 40 cm)
- Temiskaming Shores - Temagami
- Timmins - Cochrane - Iroquois Falls
- West Nipissing - French River
Snow amounts of 10 – 15 cm expected by the afternoon in:
- Espanola - Killarney
