Heavy Snow Warning Issued for the Sault


The snow squalls have come to an end but the snow hasn’t.  Sault Ste. Marie is expected to see another 15 to 20cm by Saturday prompting Environment Canada to issue a warning for the area.  Snow squalls continue north of the city between Heyden and Wawa. A  Snow Squall warning remains in effect for areas north.

Snowfall warning in effect for:

Sault Ste. Marie – St. Joseph Island
Snowfall, with total amounts of 15 to 20 cm is expected.

Another significant snowfall on the way Friday night through Saturday.

A Colorado low is expected to trek towards Southern Ontario tonight, with snow spreading across much of the region this evening. Snow will continue overnight and much of Saturday, as well as Saturday night. The snow is not expected to be particularly heavy, but the overall duration of the event is significant, and will give a general snowfall of 15 to 20 centimetres by the time it winds down later Saturday night.

Deteriorating winter travel conditions can be expected with snow-covered roads and reduced visibility in falling snow.

Be prepared to adjust your driving with changing road conditions. If visibility is reduced while driving, turn on your lights and maintain a safe following distance.


  1. Turn on your lights even if visibility is NOT reduced. Having your headlights and taillights on makes your vehicle easier for others to spot in all weather conditions.
