Snow Squall Watch Ended, But Now There’s Something Else To Worry About

0

If you’re not liking the snow, you’ll be happy to know that a snow squall watch has now expired for Sault Ste. Marie for today. The squalls had a potential for significant snow accumulation today but the winds kept most of that action to Upper Michigan. The cold air however will remain for the next several days.

As one low pressure system tracks further north, another Alberta Clipper is poised to move in tonight - could produce anywhere from 5 to 20cm by late Tuesday.

What we didn’t see today however could come tomorrow thanks to a fast moving storm known as an Alberta Clipper.  Forecast models vary in the amount of snow possible, some saying as much as 20cm while others are calling for a lot less, in the 5cm range. The storm system is expected to move in quickly tonight and exit the region by Tuesday morning.

A chance of additional lake enhancement is possible as the clipper moves east. Colder air behind the clipper could trigger another round of possible snow squalls or heavy lake effect snows.

As mentioned, more seasonal type weather will remain with us for the better part of January with only a few days where we might warm back to the freezing mark. In fact for the next 60 days or so temperatures will basically be at normal levels, that being -5 to -10c on average. A warming trend with above normal temperatures and possible rain showers are forecast for mid to the end of February.
