Snowfall Warning (Wawa – White River – Pukaskwa)

5:03 AM EST Saturday 05 February 2022
Snowfall warning in effect for:

  • Wawa – Pukaskwa Park

Snow, heavy at times, expected this afternoon through Sunday morning.

Hazards:
Snow, heavy at times. Peak snowfall rates of 2 to 3 cm per hour are possible which can reduce visibilities.
Total snowfall amounts near 15 to 20 cm are expected. Locally higher amounts are also possible especially for areas near Lake Superior.

When:
This afternoon through Sunday morning.

Discussion:
Snow is expected to taper from west to east early Sunday morning. This snowfall is due to a low pressure system, an Alberta Clipper, that is expected to track east across Lake Superior tonight through Sunday.

Be prepared to adjust your driving with changing road conditions. Visibility may be suddenly reduced at times in heavy snow. Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become difficult to navigate due to accumulating snow. If visibility is reduced while driving, turn on your lights and maintain a safe following distance.
