Shovels ready? snowy weekend ahead


Snow starting tonight could leave us with a white Christmas after all. To make it official, Environment Canada says we need at least 2cm on the ground Christmas morning, well after this weekend, we might just achieve that.

Snow squalls are expected to set up Friday night and all day Saturday that could leave us with about 12 cm come Saturday night.  Colder temperatures over the next few days will help the snow stick around this time.

A warm up is expected still for much of next week into Christmas. Whether the warmer days along with some cool rain will melt the snow by Christmas is still a possibility. Temperatures are expected to rebound come mid week to plus 5c including Christmas Day. Normal temperatures for this time of year is -3c.

Snow squalls can produce a lot of snow in a short time in localized areas. Sault Ste. Marie saw a few snow squalls develop Thursday leaving us with dusting, after this weekend, it will leave us with a fresh blanket of snow.

Traditionally, Sault Ste. Marie has a 97 percent chance of having a white Christmas
