Spring is here. The temperatures are finally warming up, and precipitation of any kind isn’t expected for the coming week.

While storm systems are bringing snow and high winds in the Thunder Bay area, northern Minnesota and eastern Ontario, Environment Canada Meteorologist Geoff Coulson says that northwestern Ontario is in the clear.

“Right now it looks like the snow will stay to the east of the Lake of the Woods area. We have an area of high pressure over the next few days. Plenty of sunshine in the forecast. Temperatures bouncing back to more seasonal values as we head back into the end of the work week and into the weekend. Temperatures are expected to be higher than seasonal temperatures this weekend.”

Coulson added that the Dryden area may see some light flurries tonight. He says that any residents who are travelling east in the next couple of days are advised that they may have reduced visibility.

The region is expected to see highs of around plus 7 Celsius throughout the week, and a high of plus 11 C on Friday.
