The extreme weather and snowfall warnings may no longer be in effect, but that doesn’t mean the snow has stopped falling.

In fact, we’ll be getting some light snowfall throughout the morning, with 15 km/h winds blowing them hither and thither.

But Thursday brings more inches of the powder, with a high of -6 C and periods of snow throughout the day.
