If you didn’t feel like we had enough snow for Christmas, you’re going to get your wish. Though Sault Ste. Marie has missed most of the active weather caused by storms, we are in the bullseye for a good amount of lake effect snow.
Weather advisory in effect for:
Sault Ste. Marie – St. Joseph Island
Searchmont – Montreal River Harbour – Batchawana Bay
Winter Weather Travel Advisory in effect for late this afternoon and tonight.
Lake effect snow off Lake Superior is expected to develop this afternoon. Local snowfall amounts of 8 to 12 cm will be possible by later tonight. Westerly winds gusting to 60 km/h may create areas of blowing snow giving reduced visibility.
The most intense activity is expected late this afternoon and through the evening hours when snowfall rates of a few centimetres per hour will be possible at times. Very poor visibility in heavy snow and blowing snow is likely.
Travel will likely be hazardous due to rapidly accumulating snow and poor visibility. Motorists are urged to exercise caution.
