The heart of a large winter storm will just miss the Sault region to the south, but we will catch the northern edge with some mixed precipitation. About 5-10cm of snow arrives early today with freezing rain and ice pellets likely later this afternoon and this evening. Gusty northeast winds will blow most of the day. Regions to the east of the Sault could produce higher snowfall amounts while regions to the north will see less. Areas east of the city will also see much more freezing rain.
Saturday and Sunday look to bring scattered snowsqualls back into the region with 5-10cm possible each day as temperatures remain below the freezing mark.
Warmer than normal temperatures and rain return for a few days early next week before cold moves back in again.
