Hope you like snow


It appears we’re making up for the little snow we got last year, overnight Sault Ste. Marie picked up 20cm from persistent snow squalls and lake effect snow and that will continue today with another 10cm or more expected.

Though Environment Canada has lifted the snow squall warning for the area, Sault Ste. Marie and Superior east region still remains in a snow squall watch for today. Heavy lake effect snow is expected to last through the weekend coupled with cold arctic air.

Snow squall watch in effect for:

Sault Ste. Marie – St. Joseph Island
Local snow squalls are occurring in the region. Snowfall amounts of 5 to 10 cm are possible along with low visibilities in heavy and blowing snow.

Snow squalls cause weather conditions to vary considerably; changes from clear skies to heavy snow within just a few kilometres are common. Travel may be hazardous due to sudden changes in the weather.
