WEATHER ALERT
ENVIRONMENT CANADA
*************************
Special weather statement in effect for:

  • Sault Ste. Marie - St. Joseph Island

A messy mix of precipitation on tap today.

The Sault Ste. Marie area will be very close to the rain - snow line as a Colorado low passes by just to the south of the area later today.

As a result, much of the precipitation will fall as snow and ice pellets, with some rain possible especially over St. Joseph Island. Freezing rain is also possible, although the greatest threat appears to be just to the east of the area where freezing rain warnings are in effect.

Precipitation will change over to all snow by midnight as much colder air arrives from the north in the wake of the low.

Total snowfall amounts of 4 to 8 centimetres are expected by the time the snow ends tonight.

A slight change in the track of the low will affect how much snow, rain or freezing rain falls at a particular location.

Poor winter driving conditions are expected. Motorists should allow extra time to reach their destination.

Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to ONstorm@canada.ca or tweet reports using #ONStorm.
