Environment Canada has ended the WINTER STORM WATCH for Sault Ste. Marie. The track of the storm is now leaning more easterly and impacting areas from Blind River to North Bay with heavy amounts of snow. That doesn’t mean we won’t see additional snow, but the amount of snow could be much less than originally forecast for the Sault. Meanwhile, if you’re planning on heading east and south, you could be facing a wide range of weather from snow, to ice pellets, freezing rain and rain.
Special weather statement in effect for:
Sault Ste. Marie – St. Joseph Island
Searchmont – Montreal River Harbour – Batchawana Bay
Northwestern edge of snow storm affecting the region tonight into Sunday.
After a break in the snow this afternoon and evening, another area of snow will move in from the southwest tonight as a Texas low moves across the Lowe Great Lakes.
With this region being near the northwestern edge of the snow area, total amounts by noon on Sunday will range from a meagre 2 cm over northwestern areas such as Montreal River Harbour to 5 to 10 cm over areas such as St. Joseph and Kirkland Lake.
Folks planning travel to the east towards the Sudbury, Manitoulin and North Bay areas should note winter storm warnings are in effect there.
