Heavy Snow Squalls Developing for Friday night


Some of the coldest air this winter is racing across Lake Superior and not just chilling us to the bone but also developing heavy snow squalls expected this evening.

With any luck the city will be out of the line of fire but at this point it appears they are moving in.

3:21 PM EST Friday 10 March 2017
Snow squall warning in effect for: Sault Ste. Marie – St. Joseph Island

Snow squalls giving whiteout conditions at times through this evening.

Snow squalls off Lake Superior will continue to affect the Sault Ste Marie area with local accumulations of up 15 cm expected. The main impact will be whiteout conditions at times due to blowing snow.

The squalls are expected to shift southward out of the region near midnight as winds become more northerly.

Visibility will be suddenly reduced to near zero at times in heavy snow and blowing snow. If visibility is reduced while driving, slow down, watch for tail lights ahead and be prepared to stop.
