While Sault Ste. Marie is seeing rain and temperatures above freezing, just north of here is a winter wonderland. Rain turns to snow around Pancake Bay north to Wawa and White River.
Sault Ste. Marie will remain on the warm sector allowing rain / drizzle for most of the day, however temperatures are expected to fall to freezing or lower tonight along with gusty winds. That could mean a little snow for the City overnight with 2 to 4cm expectrred by morning.
Snowfall warning in effect for:
Wawa – Pukaskwa Park
White River – Dubreuilville
Snow heavy at times is expected today.
Snow will continue near Lake Superior and spread eastward towards the Quebec border later this morning. Snowfall amounts in the 15 to 20 cm range are expected. The snow will taper off from west to east later this afternoon over north of Superior, and through tonight over northeastern Ontario.
This snowfall is due to a developing low pressure system that will track south of the region.
Prepare for quickly changing and deteriorating travel conditions. Visibility may be suddenly reduced at times in heavy snow. Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become difficult to navigate due to accumulating snow.
