An Environment Canada meteorologist reminds us that the mess headed our way the next couple days really is spring weather. Steve Flisfeder says spring is a transitional time, and the sunshine with occasional showers is more typical in April and May.
A system from the southern States is taking aim at our entire region. Flisfeder says it’ll probably be “purely snow” for the Kapuskasing area, and a mix of snow, freezing rain and ice pellets for the rest of us.
“The main system originated in Texas and it’s going to be making its way north across the Great Lakes,” he outlines. “It’s going to start to impact the Kapuskasing area and Timmins area tomorrow morning. So first Kapuskasing, before moving on to Timmins.”
Flisfeder says it will start as flurries overnight around Kap.
“The snow from the system should start early to mid-morning for Kapuskasing, later in the morning for Timmins, and that’s going to be continuing through the day Wednesday, Thursday, maybe into Friday with some flurry activity on the backside.”
Should the system stay on track, snow- or winter storm warnings will be issued later today.
When it’s over, we could have close to a foot of new snow to shovel.
