Alerts in Effect
Snow Squall WatchIssued at 04:50 Saturday 10 December 2016
Snow squalls are expected to develop. Under the snow squall bands, visibilities will be significantly reduced due to the heavy snow combined with blowing snow, and snow will quickly accumulate.
Snow squalls coming off the Great Lakes may occasionally extend into the region today.
Motorists should be prepared for sudden hazardous winter driving conditions and allow extra time to reach their destination.
Snow squalls cause weather conditions to vary considerably; changes from clear skies to heavy snow within just a few kilometres are common. 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.
