Get your shovels and snowblowers ready because another major dumping of snow is in the forecast for late tonight and into Tuesday. With 50cm on the ground right now, we already have triple the amount of snow on the ground that we did all of last winter. The ole fashioned Northern Ontario winter continues. Environment Canada has issued the following special weather statement.
5:07 AM EST Monday 09 January 2017
Special weather statement in effect for:
- Agawa – Lake Superior Park
- Sault Ste. Marie – St. Joseph Island
- Searchmont – Montreal River Harbour – Batchawana Bay
Snow and blowing snow is expected to develop tonight near the shores of Georgian Bay and Lake Superior and then spread northeastward through the day Tuesday. Snowfall accumulations of 10 to 15 cm are likely before the snow changes to rain Tuesday evening near Georgian Bay or tapers to flurries Tuesday night east of Lake Superior.
The system responsible is a Colorado low that will affect much of the province.
