Today is what March is supposed to feel like. Starts off cool then add some bright the sun and you can feel the warmth . The melting begins and everything is good.
That is, until Mother Nature throws us a curve ball . The most recent threat of the return to snowy weather comes from a state side born low pressure system that is actually producing blizzard conditions in the plains of the U.S. this low is tracking due east and north . Another system track north east originating from the gulf states is carrying with it a lot of moisture. It’s the northern low that we’re concerned about.
We will sit on the northern edge of this system so if it does track more east, we could see more of a snow – wind event. If the low tracks north east we could see some freeing rain to rain. Either way, our temperatures will remain fairly mild for the periods before a short dip early next week then rebounding to plus 4 to plus 6 by next weekend.
Special weather statement in effect for:
Sault Ste. Marie – St. Joseph Island
Searchmont – Montreal River Harbour – Batchawana Bay

Motorists should be prepared for hazardous winter driving conditions. Snowfall warnings may be issued for some areas as the event draws nearer.
