Warnings

10:06 PM EDT Thursday 20 September 2018
Rainfall warning in effect for:

Timmins - Cochrane - Iroquois Falls


Rain, at times heavy, is expected.

Rain and possible thunderstorms are expected over northeastern Ontario tonight into Friday. The rain could be heavy at times with amounts near 50 mm expected over the northern portions of the region, north of Chapleau and Timmins. Embedded thunderstorms will likely give torrential rainfall from time to time. As a result, areas that receive several thunderstorms may see even higher amounts.

Although rain and possible thunderstorms will continue on Friday, the bulk of the rain is expected tonight.

Rain will taper to scattered showers Friday evening.

Heavy downpours can cause flash floods and water pooling on roads. Localized flooding in low-lying areas is possible.

Rainfall warnings are issued when significant rainfall is expected.

Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to ONstorm@canada.ca or tweet reports using #ONStorm.

Warnings

11:19 AM EST Sunday 24 February 2019
Winter storm warning in effect for:

Timmins - Cochrane - Iroquois Falls

Winter storm today and tonight.

A winter storm will give 15 to 20 cm of snow by Monday morning. The heaviest snowfall is expected this afternoon.

In addition, northwesterly wind gusts of 60 to 70 km/h are expected tonight into Monday morning resulting in very low visibility in blowing snow.

Conditions will improve through the day Monday as winds diminish.

Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become difficult to navigate due to accumulating snow. Visibility will be suddenly reduced to near zero at times in heavy snow and blowing snow.

Winter storm warnings are issued when multiple types of severe winter weather are expected to occur together.

Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to ONstorm@canada.ca or tweet reports using #ONStorm.

Warnings

5:32 AM EST Sunday 24 February 2019
Blizzard warning in effect for:

Fraserdale - Pledger Lake
Kapuskasing - Hearst - Smooth Rock Falls


Blizzard conditions with near zero visibility in snow and blowing snow this afternoon and evening.

Snow will be heavy at times today through late tonight with total snowfall amounts of 15 to 30 cm likely. Meanwhile, northerly wind gusts of 60 to 80 km/h are expected this afternoon through early Monday morning. The combination of falling snow and strong, gusty winds will result in blizzard conditions with widespread near zero visibility this afternoon and evening.

Consider postponing non-essential travel until conditions improve.

Travel is expected to be hazardous due to reduced visibility. Limit outdoor activities.

Blizzard warnings are issued when widespread reduced visibilities of 400 metres or less are expected for at least 4 hours.

Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to ONstorm@canada.ca or tweet reports using #ONStorm.

Any idea how much snow is on the ground up there?

Also, "too much" (or a variant of the phrase) is not an accepted answer. [snicker

I think before this storm the airport showed 59cm on the ground. I'd say that we've gotten at least 15cm since last night and there's some more to come.

None of what has fallen this Winter has melted from above zero temperatures. We've actually have had quite a bit more snow on the ground than what we have today. But I think this is the most we've had in a decade. Back in 1996 and 1997 we had well over a metre. I have to look and see what the record is.

But in yards and along roads the snowbanks are quite high in many places.
