Environment Canada meteorologist Geoff Coulson said when the snow finally does start falling, it will last for several hours.

"This is going to be turn out to be quite a duration event,” he said.

“So we're going to see it initially as a snow event, beginning overnight and continuing during the day on Thursday. We may see somewhere between 10- to 15 centimeters right across the district."

So far, a snowfall warning has been issued for Wawa.

Coulson said that warning could be extended for other areas in the region, including Timmins, Chapleau and Earlton.
