Sault Ste. Marie – Weather – This morning’s weather report from Sault Ste. Marie Airport, recorded at 5:00 AM EDT, highlights light drizzle and a chilly temperature of 3.8°C.

The humidity is at a full 100%, with the dew point at the same temperature, indicating saturated air conditions that have led to dense fog with very limited visibility of only 0.4 kilometers.

However, with the barometric pressure at 101.8 kPa and rising, we anticipate some clearing later in the day. Winds are currently from the west at 15 km/h, expected to shift to the east and increase to 20 km/h by late afternoon.

Today’s Weather Overview

Current Conditions

Sault Ste. Marie starts the day under cloudy skies with lingering drizzle and dense fog patches, which should begin to dissipate as the morning progresses. The day will continue to be cloudy with a 30 percent chance of showers or drizzle early, clearing up as the day progresses. Despite the foggy and drizzly start, the temperature is expected to rise to a much more comfortable high of 15°C. The UV index is surprisingly high at 8, so once the fog lifts, it will be important to protect against UV radiation.

Tomorrow’s Forecast

Expected Conditions

Friday, May 3, will see a continuation of the showers, which are expected to cease around noon, followed by clearing skies. Rainfall could total between 5 to 10 mm. Winds from the east at 30 km/h will decrease in intensity by late morning. Temperatures will peak at a pleasant 16°C, with the UV index dropping to a moderate 5.

Sunday maintains the sunny streak with another high of 16°C and ends with a clear night and a low of 2°C.

Wardrobe Recommendations

Given the early morning fog and drizzle, a waterproof jacket and sturdy boots are advisable. As the day clears, sunglasses and sun protection will be necessary due to the high UV index. The transition to clearer and sunnier weather over the weekend suggests lighter layers but retaining an option for warmth in the cooler evenings.
