It is November afterall, and around these parts that means a transition from Autumn to Winter, and that appears to be in the cards for this coming weekend.
A series of low pressure systems will move into the area starting today with rain mixing with wet snow tonight along with some gusty winds.
Temperatures will continue to drop after today into the negative digits over night. No accumulation of snow is expected until Friday when two systems merge with a cold shot of air poised to drop over the Great Lakes by Thursday. Come Friday, snow showers mainly from lake effect snows will begin and drop as much as 10 to 15cm by Saturday. Making it the first measurable snow on the ground for the season.
The snow could last a bit with temperatures hovering around the freezing mark heading into next week.
The good news is, if you aren’t into snow that is, the first snowfall will likely melt before winter really begins to settle in for later in the month.
At present Environment Canada has not issued a warning or watch. SaultOnline.com ONNtv will continue to monitor the weather conditions and update when needed.
