We’re not quite done being dumped on, there’s a possibility that more lake enhanced snow squalls will develop Thursday night into Friday before the snow comes to and end with a slight mild trend developing for early next week. For the day today, just a mix of sun and cloud before the snow squalls continue later tonight.
Snow squall watch in effect for:
Agawa – Lake Superior Park
Sault Ste. Marie – St. Joseph Island
Searchmont – Montreal River Harbour – Batchawana Bay
Snow squalls are expected to develop this evening for portions of Superior East and persist until Friday morning. Local snowfall amounts of 15 cm are possible.
Northwest winds gusting to 50 km/h will also generate significant blowing snow reducing visibility to near zero at times.
Visibility may be suddenly reduced at times in heavy snow. Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become difficult to navigate due to accumulating snow.
Snow squall watches are issued when conditions are favourable for the formation of bands of snow that could produce intense accumulating snow or near zero visibilities.
