Winter weather on the way

5

Just as Saultonline.com reported Tuesday, a change in the weather is in the works. Say good bye to warm dry conditions, at least for the next several days. Environment Canada issued this statement Wednesday:

Special weather statement in effect for:

Agawa – Lake Superior Park
Searchmont – Montreal River Harbour – Batchawana Bay
Rain and mild conditions will change to snow with much colder temperatures tonight across Northwestern Ontario and Thursday in areas further to the east as a strong cold front blasts across the region. Brisk westerly winds gusting to 60 km/h will usher in considerably colder air in the wake of the cold front, resulting in local blowing snow and reduced visibilities in Northwestern Ontario by Thursday.

Many areas of Northwestern Ontario will likely receive a total of 5 to 10 cm of snow by Thursday night.

In areas north and east of Lake Superior, much colder air will arrive Thursday, and as temperatures drop to near or below freezing, showers will change over to flurries, with an increasing potential for accumulating lake effect snow beginning Thursday afternoon and continuing into Friday. Snow squall watches and warnings may eventually be required.

Motorists should be prepared for difficult winter driving conditions after the cold air arrives, and allow extra time to reach their destination, as untreated roads may become snow covered and slippery.

  1. TEMPERATURES in the Soo are going to fall sharply over the coming weeks because that is what happens at this time of year.
    Meteorologists believe that winter, a spell of short, cold days with the potential for snow commonly defined as a season, will be more or less exactly what you would expect.
    Professor Henry Brubaker of the Institute for Studies said: “Household fuel costs will rise considerably as families try to increase the temperature of their homes.
    “People on the verge of death may die.”
    “Ice and snow will create icy, snowy conditions.”
    “Your car will refuse to start.”
    “Because it’s winter.”
    “It’s really nothing to freak out about, unless you’re a pre-Neanderthal cave dweller who believes sunsets are caused by Gark, the angry moon god.”
    He added: “There’s a high probability that this winter will be followed by another sudden, weather-related phenomenon known as spring.”
    Housewife Nikki Hollis said: “The important thing is to stay inside, carry a flaming torch at all times and don’t be sentimental about eating your plumpest child.”
