We’ve been telling you for most of this week that we could be seeing our first major snow accumulation this week, now Environment Canada is saying the same thing. The Sault missed out on the Halloween storm yesterday that produced heavy snow for areas east of the city, but now we’re facing some lake effect snow and we all know how unpredictable that can be.
Special weather statement in effect for:
Agawa – Lake Superior Park
Sault Ste. Marie – St. Joseph Island
Searchmont – Montreal River Harbour – Batchawana Bay
Significant snowfall amounts are expected this evening and into Saturday morning.
Cold west and northwest flow over relatively warm waters of Lake Superior is expected to produce flurries and local snow squalls beginning this evening and continuing into Saturday morning.
Total snowfall amounts of 5 to 10 cm with locally up to 15 cm over higher terrain are possible.
