Snow Squall Watch

Issued at 04:55 Friday 12 February 2016
Summary

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. An Arctic cold front is forecast to cross Southern Ontario latest today and introduce the coldest air of the season. As a result, a band of intense snow squalls are expected to develop and move across the region this evening. Accumulations of 5 to 10 cm are possible this evening. Snow squalls are likely to lock in from southern Lake Huron on Saturday with more significant snowfall amounts likely from near Grand Bend extending to locales to the southeast. 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. 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 storm.ontario@ec.gc.ca or tweet reports to #ONStorm.
