15 to 20 cm of snow expected today and tonight.
Rain will change to snow at times heavy this morning and persist through the day. North winds gusting 60 to possibly 70 km/h will also result in local blowing snow producing reduced visibilities. The strong wind in combination with any wet snow accumulation on trees may result in local power outages.
The snow will begin to taper off tonight.
This wintery weather is attributed to a rapidly intensifying fall storm forecast to track near Sault Ste. Marie today.
