On top of the already overwhelming amount of snow we currently have, the region could see up to 14 centimetres over the next two days.  

Environment Canada Meteorologist Gerald Chang detailed some of the weather events for the next few days, “Well, I think it’s going to be quite active for the next 24 to 36 hours because we’ve got two systems happening right now.” 

“The first system that is happening right now will give us 2 to 4 centimetres for Northwestern Ontario, but that should really end late in the afternoon and we should be done with that system by tonight,” he continued.  

Chang went on to explain the second system that will immediately follow the first, “This is a clipper system, an Alberta clipper, and that’s going to give us another shot of 5 to 10 centimetres for Northwestern Ontario so certainly, it will be a one-two punch.” 

When asked if we can expect a cold front following the storm, Chang said “We are in a below-normal trend for the weekend and even well into the next week, I don’t really see any relief until the middle of next weekend, that’s when the pattern changes.” 

“So patience is the key, certainly bundle up during this time,” he concluded.
