A strong winter storm is gradually lifting into Quebec, Canada today. As a result, winds will remain strong across the region today. There will be times of blizzard conditions near Lake Superior with whiteouts, blowing, and drifting snow. Gusts will range from 50-60 near the shoreline of Lake Superior with speeds of 25-40mph. Areas south will have gusts from 40-50mph and speeds of 20-25mph. The main highways are in decent shape as crews have been clearing roads, but many side roads have large snowdrifts. If you’re traveling near Lake Superior do so with extreme caution as roads are slippery with sporadic whiteouts when winds pick up. Otherwise, avoid travel.

Lake-enhanced snow will continue in the west, north, and east through this evening. Additional snow amounts will range 8″-15″ in those areas through tonight with the interior areas ranging 4-7″ and for the south around an inch. Conditions improve overnight with winds weakening and snow tapering off. Christmas Day will be a lot better with some light snow in the nth. Next week will be quieter with a gradual warm-up.
