UPDATE SATURDAY AM: Environment Canada has cancelled the wind warning that was associated with a quick moving winter storm approaching the Great Lakes. Though it will become windy later today, Environment Canada says the winds will not be as strong as originally forecast.
Old Man Winter sure has a weird sense of humour, that’s because come April Fool’s Day, we could be back to a winter wonderland after a big storm packing winds of up to 100 km/h and heavy snow will hit the area starting Saturday afternoon.
Snowfall warning in effect for:
Sault Ste. Marie – St. Joseph Island
Searchmont – Montreal River Harbour – Batchawana Bay
Snowfall, with total amounts of about 15 cm is expected.
Snow will begin Saturday morning and is expected to be heavy at times. 15 cm of snow will fall before the snow tapers Saturday evening.
Be prepared to adjust your driving with changing road conditions. Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become difficult to navigate due to accumulating snow. If visibility is reduced while driving, turn on your lights and maintain a safe following distance.
