As SaultOnline.com / ONNtv first reported earlier this week, we’re not quite done with Winter just yet, but if we’re lucky we might just dodge the brunt of another big storm brewing up from the United States. This next Colorado Low is producing up to two feet of snow in some parts of the midwest as it makes it’s way to the Great Lakes. It’s also producing hours of freezing rain and strong winds.
Special weather statement in effect for:
Sault Ste. Marie – St. Joseph Island
Searchmont – Montreal River Harbour – Batchawana Bay
Snow and ice pellets beginning Thursday afternoon changing to freezing rain Friday evening.
Precipitation will move into Northeastern Ontario beginning Thursday afternoon. The precipitation is likely to begin as snow before changing to ice pellets and then to freezing rain late Thursday evening.
Snow and ice pellet amounts of a trace to 2 cm are likely. The freezing rain, however, may last for several hours before changing to rain early Friday morning.
Freezing rain warnings may be required.
