Saturday, March 09, 2013   by: SooToday.com Staff

ENVIRONMENT CANADA

SPECIAL WEATHER STATEMENT

*************************
SPECIAL WEATHER STATEMENT FOR: CITY OF THUNDER BAY - ATIKOKAN - UPSALA - QUETICO - SUPERIOR WEST - GULL BAY - BLACK STURGEON LAKE - BEARDMORE - JELLICOE - MACDIARMID - NIPIGON - MARATHON - SUPERIOR NORTH.

SIGNIFICANT SNOWFALL TODAY AND TONIGHT NORTH AND WEST OF LAKE SUPERIOR.

SPECIAL WEATHER STATEMENT ENDED FOR: SAULT STE. MARIE - SUPERIOR EAST - GREATER SUDBURY AND VICINITY - MANITOULIN - BLIND RIVER - KILLARNEY - NORTH BAY - WEST NIPISSING.

A TROUGH OF LOW PRESSURE CONTINUES TO PRODUCE SNOW OVER NORTHWESTERN ONTARIO TODAY.
 
IT HAS WEAKENED SOMEWHAT THIS AFTERNOON BUT SOME HEAVIER SNOW WILL SETTLE IN AGAIN THIS EVENING ESPECIALLY FOR REGIONS JUST TO THE NORTH AND NORTHWEST OF LAKE SUPERIOR. IT IS EXPECTED TO TAPER OFF IN MOST AREAS OVERNIGHT OR EARLY SUNDAY MORNING.
 
CURRENT INDICATIONS SUGGEST GENERAL SNOWFALL TOTALS MAY APPROACH 15 CM OVER THE DURATION OF THIS SNOW EPISODE. HOWEVER, THERE IS STILL SOME UNCERTAINTY, ESPECIALLY FOR AREAS NEAR THE LAKE SUPERIOR SHORELINE WHERE TEMPERATURES ARE EXPECTED TO BE NEAR ZERO DEGREES. AS A RESULT, MUCH OF THE PRECIPITATION COULD FALL AS WET SNOW NEAR THE LAKE, THEREBY REDUCING ACCUMULATIONS.

TRAVELLERS SHOULD BE PREPARED FOR POOR ROAD CONDITIONS IN ACCUMULATING SNOW AND LOW VISIBILITIES UNDER HEAVY SNOW.

ENVIRONMENT CANADA METEOROLOGISTS ARE WATCHING THE EVOLUTION OF THIS WEATHER SYSTEM CLOSELY. PLEASE MONITOR THE LATEST FORECASTS, STATEMENTS AND WARNINGS FROM ENVIRONMENT CANADA AT WWW.WEATHEROFFICE.GC.CA.

Just when I have family returning home tomorrow, it's always a worry this time of year.
