Environment Canada has issued a Winter Weather Travel Advisory for much of Durham region. The advisory is in effect for the entirety of November 11. According to Environment Canada, snow will begin early Monday morning and continue through the evening. Snowfall accumulations of 10 to 15 centimetres are possible by the time the snow ends late Monday night. Environment Canada states travel will be impacted Monday due to accumulating snow, particularly during the afternoon commute. This snowfall is due to a developing low pressure system which will track south of the lower Great Lakes on Monday. Environment Canada says there remains some uncertainty regarding the exact track path of the low pressure system, and the expected snowfall amounts.

One of the 13 Humboldt Broncos injured in last year’s tragic collision involving a truck driver and the team’s travel bus has made a staggering recovery. Ryan Straschnitzki, who was paralyzed from the chest down, has begun to move his legs after receiving some experimental surgery in Thailand. On Monday, doctors had implanted an epidural stimulator into his spine, reasoning that it could potentially restore some of his movement capabilities. Early tests show the young man is able to gingerly move his leg, and has already been asking to hit the gym. He’ll be remaining in Thailand until December.
