EC – Special Weather Statement – Potential for Heavy Snow Tuesday

At 5 a.m. Environment Canada issued a special weather statement for:

  • Wawa – Pukaskwa Park
  • White River – Dubreuilville
  • Marathon – Schreiber
  • Manitouwadge – Hornepayne

There is a potential for heavy snowfall on Tuesday for areas northeast of Lake Superior. Snow is expected to intensify later tonight or early Tuesday morning and persist for much of the day. Snowfall accumulations may exceed 15 cm by Tuesday evening, particularly for areas closer to Lake Superior.

For Wawa, temperatures may briefly rise above the freezing mark. As a result, snowfall accumulations there may be slightly less than areas farther west as the snow may change to rain for a few hours before changing back to snow.
