A low-pressure system moving towards the Great Lakes early this week has decided to slide south of the Sault region. This means the expected snow and rain will instead hit locations closer to Georgian Bay and Southern Ontario on Tuesday. Instead, we will see a few flurries and showers.
For most of this week, the Sault region will cruise along with daytime highs just a few degrees above freezing until much colder air arrives on Thursday. The cooler temperatures and northwest winds expected for late Thursday into Friday mean we could face a few snowsqualls at the end of this workweek.
Monday will bring one last day of mostly sunny skies with temperatures near 4°C. A few clouds move in later today with a light easterly wind.
Clouds will arrive early Tuesday morning, and daytime highs will reach 3°C by noon. Wet flurries mixed with scattered showers arrive in the afternoon, and temperatures begin to drop. It is unlikely that we will see any of the snowfall remain on the ground.
Wednesday brings a mix of sun and cloud, with temperatures near 4°C. Cold air rushes into the area on Thursday as daytime highs occur early in the morning.
Friday will spend all day below freezing with a northwest wind that brings the risk of snow squalls off of Lake Superior.
