Developing snow squalls are about to move into the Sault Ste. Marie and Batchawana Bay area. They will likely persist into tonight. There is a potential for localized heavy snow accumulations of 15 to 30 cm by Tuesday morning.

In addition, local blowing snow may contribute to very poor visibility at times.
