Big Winter Storm Could Move In On Saturday


Another  big low pressure promises to bring a mixed bag of snow to rain is approaching the great lakes for this weekend and it appears the Sault will be on the snowy side of the storm.

Much like the system last week that brought a lot of snow to parts of the area and record breaking rain to the south (the Sault dodged most of that storm) this storm however is tracking more northerly bringing a good chance it will impact the area.

Environment Canada has issued this special weather statement, expect watches and warning to appear Saturday.

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 expected Saturday through Sunday morning.

An approaching low pressure system will bring snowfall to Northeastern and Eastern Ontario starting Saturday morning. Total snowfall amounts of 15 to 25 cm are expected. Strong winds up to 50 km/h will create areas of local blowing snow on Saturday afternoon. The snow will ease to light flurries Sunday morning.

Visibilities will be reduced in areas of blowing snow, which can make travel hazardous. Be prepared to adjust your driving with changing road conditions.

Warnings may be issued as the event draws near.


  1. Just more fear mongering like last weekend. Sure…we will get some snow…but does it really qualify as a STORM? It is after all winter in Canada….we expect snow.
