Winter highway

Special weather statement in effect for:

Agawa – Lake Superior Park
Searchmont – Montreal River Harbour – Batchawana Bay
10 to 15 centimetres of snow on tap today. Sault Ste. Marie will see a mix of ice and snow.

Snow is spreading across Northern Ontario as expected as a low pressure system tracks northeast across Lake Superior and Northeastern Ontario into Quebec today.

Total snowfall amounts between 10 and 15 centimetres are expected. Snow will taper off to scattered flurries this afternoon into early evening.

Poor winter driving conditions are expected due to occasional low visibility in snow, and accumulating snow on untreated roads. Motorists should allow extra time to reach their destination.

Snowfall amounts are expected to be just below the warning criteria of 15 centimetres per 12 hours.
