We were hoping this storm would by-pass us , but it doesn’t appear that way. If the forecast holds true this storm will quickly move in and move out but could dump as much as 25 cm by Tuesday. Snow Squalls are making up the bulk of the accumulation amounts forecast and those can always be unpredictable. Some areas could see a lot of new snow while others may see only 5cm. Either way, be prepared while driving.
Special weather statement in effect for:
Agawa – Lake Superior Park
Sault Ste. Marie – St. Joseph Island
Searchmont – Montreal River Harbour – Batchawana Bay
Snow beginning Sunday afternoon with snow squalls developing early Monday.
Snow associated with a low pressure system will move into the area Sunday afternoon. Snowfall amounts near 10 cm are likely by early Monday morning.
In the wake of this low, snow squalls will develop early Monday morning. Additional snowfall amounts of 15 cm are possible through Monday. Strong west to northwest winds gusting up to 60 km/h will result in areas of blowing snow giving reduced visibility.
The snow squalls will ease late in the day on Monday.
Snow squall watches or warnings are likely to be issued as the event draws near.
