Alerts in Effect
Snow Squall watchIssued at 3:11 p.m. EST Monday 2 March 2015
Brief, intense snowfall is expected to develop. Under the snow squall, visibilities will be significantly reduced due to the heavy snow combined with blowing snow. A cold front from Northwestern Quebec will sweep across the centre of the province during the day and Eastern Quebec in the evening. This front will be favourable for the development of snowsqualls today. The combination of snow at times heavy and blowing snow could significantly reduce visibilities in snowsqualls.Details
Visibility may be suddenly reduced at times in heavy 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. Environment Canada meteorologists will update alerts as required. Please continue to monitor your local media or Weatheradio for further updates.
