Believe it or not but the “s” word has made it back into our weather forecast. A touch of arctic air associated with a high pressure system moving in from the north will throw some cooler air our way over the weekend along with a system developing in the gulf states moving moisture north. As that system bumps into the cooler air it could produce snow showers by late Saturday into Sunday.
It won’t be anything like the winter storm that hit Newfoundland yesterday, dumping as much as 30 cm in St.John’s and Gander.
Several national weather services agree that snow is possible even with some accumulation by Sunday night. Temperatures are expected to plunge to a daytime high of 4 with overnight lows of -2c to -6c. Environment Canada says we have a 30 percent probability of seeing some precipitation within the Algoma district Saturday and Sunday. What type of precipitation is the question. Temperatures are expected to rebound to plus double digits by mid week, next week.
