Halloween could be a lot scarier than usual, that’s thanks to a developing storm that will slide through the province Wednesday night into Thursday that could dump as much as 20 to 40cm of snow in the area according to forecasters.
The exact track of this storm is still a big question mark, but forecasters are warning to brace ourselves for a mix of rain, snow and strong winds as a cold front ushers in much cooler air and that could mean lake effect snows for the Superior East regions including the Sault.
Environment Canada has not issued any watches or warnings as of yet, but forecasters say the northern part of the province will likely see snow while southern Ontario will deal with heavy rain and wind come Halloween night. The long range forecast has snow or flurries for the Sault starting Thursday and lasting through most of the weekend. Thursday the Sault should see temperatures hovering around 5c but then Temperatures are expected to nose dive to -3c overnight.
We will continue to monitor this latest storm situation and update when additional information becomes available.
