If you think we’ve seen the end of major snowfall for the season, think again. Another wave of cold arctic air and a mix of system snow and potentially snow squalls could impact Sault Ste. Marie starting Monday night into Wednesday. Upwards of 20cm of new snow is expected with this next storm system. Environment Canada has issued this special weather statement for the area.

Special weather statement in effect for:
Agawa – Lake Superior Park
Sault Ste. Marie – St. Joseph Island
Searchmont – Montreal River Harbour – Batchawana Bay
A low pressure area brewing in the Southern Plains States is forecast to deepen into a winter storm as its centre tracks northeast towards Southern Ontario early this week.
This storm track places Northeastern Ontario on the cold side of the low, resulting in a potential for a significant snowfall across the region Tuesday into Wednesday.
Travelling conditions may deteriorate and become quite hazardous as a result.
Environment Canada will continue to closely monitor this weather system. Warnings may be required as this event draws closer.
