A snow squall warning will expire later this morning, light snow is expected until about 11am when clouds will begin to thin and even some sun poking out. Tonight, the cold air begins to retreat and warmer air from the south will move in giving us a high of plus 3 for Saturday which is where we should be at this time of year.
Four days of non-stop snow squalls and lake effect snow has left about 30 cm on the ground in the Sault, much more out at the airport that recently recorded over 60cm on the ground there. In total over 100 cm has fallen since November 11, most of it in the last 48 hours. Areas to the north has seen substantially more.
A warming trend, first reported by Saultonline last week, will bump temperatures to above normal levels for Sunday and Monday – along with some rain showers. On Sunday temperatures are expected to reach up to 7c before cooling again for Tuesday.
Don’t expect the snow to disappear though – most of it will stay depending on how much rain we get. Things may become very icy and slick by Monday night into Tuesday as temperatures plummet to below normal values.
There is another shot of warmer air coming in for the first week of December.
