March Will Come In Like a Lion :Wind Warning Issued


February ends today with one more day of “Spring-Like” weather before the Lion known as March comes roaring in.

A sharp contrast in temperatures behind a cold front will help produce strong winds as the front passes through the area tonight and into Monday.

Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement warning of strong winds of gusts to 80 km/h developing late Sunday.

To make matters worse, the cold front is expected to give us rounds of mixed precipitation ranging from freezing rain, rain then wet snow Sunday into Monday.

Temperatures will also nose-dive from plus 4c Sunday to -10c Sunday night into Monday.

Wind warning in effect for:

  • Sault Ste. Marie – St. Joseph Island

Strong winds tonight and Monday.

Strong northwest winds gusting up to 90 km/h are forecast to develop late this evening near and along the shorelines of Whitefish Bay and northern Lake Huron. Winds will then diminish slightly overnight but will strengthen again Monday morning. Gusts up to 80 km/h will be possible again Monday morning into the early afternoon. The winds will diminish Monday evening.

Power outages are possible.

High winds may toss loose objects or cause tree branches to break.
