"Lake-enhanced flurries will develop Thursday morning. Local snowfall amounts of 7 to 14 centimetres are possible by this evening," Environment Canada said in a weather alert.

"Areas close (to) the shore of Lake Superior will receive a mix of rain and snow and as a result, snowfall amounts will be less."

The following communities are affected:

  • Agawa
  • Batchawana BayChapleau
  • Cochrane
  • Elliot Lake
  • Iroquois Falls
  • Kirkland Lake
  • Lake Superior Park
  • Missinaibi Lake

"Consider postponing non-essential travel until conditions improve," the weather alert said.

"Motorists should expect hazardous winter driving conditions and adjust travel plans accordingly. Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become difficult to navigate due to accumulating snow."

South of North Bay, the Burk's Falls - Bayfield Inlet area is expected to get an additional two to four cm of snow Thursday morning followed by a risk of freezing drizzle as temperatures rise. Top Stories
