SAULT STE MARIE – WEATHER – Snow squalls are in the forecast for the eastern end of Lake Superior..

5:15 AM EST Monday 06 January 2020
Snow squall warning in effect for:

  • Sault Ste. Marie – St. Joseph Island
  • Searchmont – Montreal River Harbour – Batchawana Bay

Snow squalls expected today.

In the wake of a low-pressure system, cold northwest winds over the relatively warm waters of Lake Superior will result in the development of lake effect flurries and snow squalls today.

Snow squalls are expected to taper off to a few flurries as the winds shift to the southwest this evening. However, they could redevelop again Tuesday morning.

Total snowfall accumulations of 15 to 20 cm will be possible in some areas by this evening. In addition, northwest winds gusting to 70 km/h will result in areas of blowing snow giving very poor visibility.

For travellers heading east, check with 511 for the latest road updates.
