Squalls Move Back For Round Three


Snow squalls have shifted back into extreme western portions of Sault Ste. Marie. The airport there has reported over 50 cm of snow since last night. An additional 5 to 10 cm are likely by later this evening at which point the snow squalls should finally shift west of the region.

Snow squalls cause weather conditions to vary considerably, changes from clear skies to heavy snow within just a few kilometres are common. Be prepared to adjust your driving with changing road conditions. Public Safety Canada encourages everyone to make an emergency plan and get an emergency kit with drinking water, food, medicine, a first-aid kit and a flashlight.

Snow Squall Warnings are issued when bands of snow form that produce intense accumulating snow or near zero visibilities.
