Mother nature is ruling down with an iron fist yet again, as more snow is in the forecast.

Environment Canada, says the region will see around 5 to 10 cm of rain and snow hit the ground, starting Tuesday night (April 19, 2022) into Wednesday morning (April 20, 2022).

Along with the snow, up to 40 km/h wind gusts will accompany the spring snow and a forecasted high of +3 degrees on Wednesday.

Dryden, Sioux Lookout, and Red Lake, like Kenora, are all expected to get the hit with the same quick blast of winter.

Northwestern Ontario is still trying to clean up the mess that mother nature left last week, following a Colorado Low barreling through the region.

The spring storm brought with it 24 cm of snow to Kenora, and 40 cm of snow to the Red Lake area, between Wednesday and Thursday of last week.

Leading up to the storm the weather agency was calling for 30 to 50 cm of snow to fall. In addition to the snow, the storm brought with it 70km/h winds that forced blowing snow and low visibility on highways in the region and southeastern Manitoba.

All major roadways in northwestern Ontario, including Highway 17 were closed because of the storm for roughly 15 hours, causing motorists to reschedule or postpone their Easter plans.

This month, a total of 50 cm of snow has fallen in Kenora. Well above the average of 14.6 cm of snow.

Since January, 206.9 cm of snow has fallen in the Kenora area. The average for the same time period is 82.7 cm.
