A Colorado low is expected to dump between 10 - 15 centimetres of snow across the region Tuesday into Wednesday.

"Right now we are looking at anywhere from 6 to 12 centimetres of snow in the Kenora area," said Environment Canada Meteorologist Gerald Cheng noting that areas further east could see more snow.

"It's gonna be another snow event, but it's not the biggest we've seen this season," added Cheng.

Since the beginning of the year - January 1, 2022, through March 26, 2022 - 153 centimetres of snow has fallen in the Kenora area. Well above the January to March average of 68.1 centimetres.

In fact, in 2022 the Kenora area has already seen 16 more centimetres of snow than what fell in all of 2021.

"When we compare to all of 2021 [to 2022], only 137 centimetres fell and already we've surpassed that in the last three months, stated Cheng.

According to Cheng, the snow is expected to start midday on Tuesday before heading eastward to the Thunder Bay area.

The uncertainty regarding the track of the Colorado low and thus how much snow will fall has led Environment Canada to issue a special weather statement for the region.
