Relentless snow squalls in parts of Ontario have brought upwards of 40 cm to some places. Threat continues into Friday morning before another weekend storm.
Snow Squall WarningIssued at 7:14 AM EST Thursday 12 December 2013
Snow squalls today into early Friday. Strong winds over the open waters of Lake Huron and Georgian Bay are generating flurries and snow squalls. The heaviest snow squalls are crossing the Bruce Peninsula and then coming ashore again from south bay to Britt. Snowfall amounts of 15 cm per 12 hours are possible in the heaviest snow squalls. Should a snow squall become stationary for a few hours overnight, local snowfall amounts of 30 cm by early Friday morning are quite possible. Low to nil visibilities in snow and blowing snow continue to cause dangerous winter driving conditions. This is a multi-day event in which snow squalls are expected to begin drifting southward again tonight. Total local snowfall amounts of 60 cm or greater from this event may be reached by Friday morning.Details
