February 27th Weather Discussion

Today will be cloudy with strong northwest winds building through the day.  Flurries are possible this morning, but the heavier snow arrives in the afternoon as lake enhanced snow develops off of Lake Superior. 

Winds will be sustained at 25-40 km/h with occasional gusts over 65 km/h, and this combined with the snow will cause blowing snow and near-zero visibility.  Temperatures may reach -8°C in the late afternoon, but the gusty winds will make it feel more like -20. We should see 2-5cm of snow today with another 10-15cm overnight.

The gusty northwest winds, squalls, blowing/drifting snow and reduced visibility continue into tomorrow with another 5-10cm of snow possible. This would give 2-day totals of near 25cm for some locations, but the wind could cause drifts much deeper.

Sunshine returns on Saturday as winds weaken and then Sunday will begin a warming trend as we climb back to the freezing mark.
