We may have missed the big storm that hit the Great Lakes area over the weekend, but that doesn’t mean we won’t see any snow. In fact, we could see a lot of it to start the week.
That low pressure system that produced heavy snow from Thessalon to North Bay is now leaving the area, but as it does that , it will pull some very cold air behind it. When that air travels over the warm waters of Lake Superior, bam! we see lake effect snow.
Environment Canada is forecasting 10 to 15cm with snow squalls causing blowing snow for Monday and Monday night.
The snow will actually start Sunday night with light flurries before intensifying Monday as winds begin to pick up from the WNW. These winds will also give a wind chill of -15c. The coldest air we’ve seen since last February.
Of course with snow squalls and lake effect showers, there’s areas that will pick up more than others. That still remains a question if the squalls will set up in the city of Sault Ste. Marie or stay north in the lake effect zone of Heyden to Batchawana.
