Another Round Of Lake Effect Snow


Another disturbance will kick off lake effect snow showers for Sault Ste. Marie on Thursday.

We can expect about 5cm with some blowy conditions developing Thursday afternoon as a secondary cold front pushes through the area cranking up the lake effect snow machine once again.

Along with rain showers changing to snow Thursday, expect temperatures to drop off as the coldest air so far this the season takes hold.

High temperatures on Wednesday, expected to reach 8c by late afternoon will be replaced with sub-zero temps to settle in for the next several days. Temperatures will drop to -5c by Thursday with overnight temperatures dropping to a chilly -10c

The cold arctic air will stick around for the weekend. Additional flurries can be expected but no major accumulation is expected, 2 to 3cm by Sunday.

Keep your shovels and snow blowers handy, there’s more snow coming next week.

Yet, another fairly potent storm is currently developing on Canada’s west coast and will follow a storm track to the Great Lakes by early next week. Another 10 to 15 cm is expected by Tuesday night next week.
