Blowing Snow AdvisoryIssued at 17:44 Thursday 23 March 2017
Strong northwesterly winds gusting between 70 and 90 km/h combined with freshly fallen snow will produce near zero visibilities in blowing snow this evening and after midnight, especially along exposed areas of the coast.
Conditions will improve as snow taper off to flurries and winds diminish overnight tonight.
Travel is expected to be hazardous due to reduced visibility in some locations.
Blowing snow advisories are issued when winds are expected to create blowing snow giving poor visibility to 800 metres or less for at least 3 hours.
