Snow Squall Watch Issued


Snow Squalls are expected to develop in  following a low pressure system that will race through Sunday night.  Sault Ste. Marie can expect up to 25cm

Snow squall watch in effect for:

Agawa – Lake Superior Park
Sault Ste. Marie – St. Joseph Island
Searchmont – Montreal River Harbour – Batchawana Bay
Snow squalls expected overnight into Monday.

Snow associated with an approaching weather system will affect regions near Lake Superior this afternoon and evening with several centimetres likely. After the system passes overnight, increasing northwest winds will result in the development of lake effect flurries and snow squalls which will persist into Monday.

Snowfall accumulations of 15 to 25 cm will be possible in some areas from tonight until late Monday. In addition, northwest winds gusting to 70 km/h will result in areas of blowing snow giving very poor visibility.

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. Consider postponing non-essential travel until conditions improve.
