Meteorologist Rob Kuhn says it'll last through the morning, tapering off this afternoon.

The system is centred over Thunder Bay, with pockets of heavy snow throughout northwestern Ontario.

Special weather statement in effect for:

The snow may briefly be heavy this morning, with poor visibility at times.
