Alerts for: Sault Ste. Marie - Superior East


4:55 AM EST Sunday 19 November 2017
Snow squall watch in effect for:

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

Snow squalls are expected to develop. Under the snow squall bands, visibilities will be significantly reduced due to the heavy snow, and snow will quickly accumulate.

Snow squalls will likely form to the lee of Lake Superior today as northwesterly winds bring colder air into the region. Local amounts of over 15 cm within a 12-hour period are possible.

The snow squall activity is expected to diminish Monday morning.

Travel may be hazardous due to sudden changes in the weather.

Snow squall watches are issued when conditions are favourable for the formation of bands of snow that could produce intense accumulating snow or near zero visibilities.

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