3:47 PM EST Monday 24 November 2014
Special weather statement in effect for:

  • Sault Ste. Marie - St. Joseph Island
  • Searchmont - Montreal River Harbour - Batchawana Bay

A return to winter conditions tonight.

A deep low pressure system has moved into Quebec and in its wake a cold front is gradually moving southwards bringing a return of winter weather to Northeastern Ontario. Temperatures will drop below freezing this evening over Sault Ste Marie and overnight in Sudbury and by sunrise for North Bay. Snowfall amounts of 5 to 10 cm are expected in association with this front with some local amounts of 15 cm possible. Icy road conditions may result with this change in airmass.

Strong and gusty winds are also expected in the wake of the cold front, especially near the north shore of Lake Huron and Georgian Bay where a few gusts of 70 to possibly 80 km/h are expected.

Driving conditions are expected to become hazardous tonight as the precipitation changes over to snow. Untreated surfaces may become icy and slippery as the temperature drops below the freezing mark tonight. Low visibilities may also occur in snow and local blowing snow.

The public is advised to monitor future forecasts and warnings as warnings may be required or extended.

Please monitor the latest forecasts and warnings from Environment Canada at www.weatheroffice.gc.ca.
