A snow storm is on the way Monday night, Environment Canada has warned.

A snowfall warning is currently in effect for North Bay, Powassan, Mattawa, West Nipissing and French River.

The storm is expected to begin near midnight, with total snowfall amounts expected to reach between 15 to 20 centimetres.

Kirkland Lake, Englehart, Temiskaming Shores, Temagami, Bayfield Inlet, Dunchurch, South River and Burk’s Falls could see between 10 to 15 cm of snow.

A low pressure system will emerge from Texas and track towards the Great Lakes, bringing an area of snow with it.

Driving conditions will quickly deteriorate after the snow arrives tonight. Motorists should be prepared to adjust their travel plans accordingly.

Visibility may be suddenly reduced at times in heavy snow.

Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become difficult to navigate due to accumulating snow.

If visibility is reduced while driving, turn on your lights and maintain a safe following distance.

To report severe weather, send an email to ONstorm@canada.ca or tweet reports using #ONStorm.
