The first major snow event this year left many digging out Tuesday morning.
The winter storm dropped as much as 34cm in Sault Ste. Marie since early Monday morning, that amount broke a record for the most snow set back in 1967 with 21cm.
Strong winds helped create massive drifts making getting around the city pretty difficult on Monday. Today, snow plow companies are out in full force and they may have their work cut out for them as another major snowfall tonight.
Sault Police Service tells SaultOnline / ONNtv that only 12 collisions were reported in the last 24 hours. “We were really surprised” Sonny Spina from Sault Police Services said. “Most were minor, all related to the weather conditions”
Environment Canada says there’s a good chance of snow squall development tonight as much colder air slides in. The forecast calls for as much as 15cm additional cm from snow squalls later tonight. Environment Canada has not issued any warnings or watches as of yet.
