Snow Squall WarningIssued at 06:11 Friday 09 December 2016
In the wake of a cold front which blasted through the regions last evening, snow squalls have developed in the northwesterly winds off Georgian Bay. Significant snowfall in the 15 to 25 centimetre range is likely with the strongest snow squalls by this evening.
Local snowfall amounts of 30 centimetres are possible in a few locales should a snow squall lock in for a few hours.
A meteorologist measured 19 cm of snow in Barrie, and a public report estimated about 20 cm of snow in Angus as of 6.00 AM.
Sudden low to nil visibility and hazardous winter driving conditions are expected. Untreated roads may be snow covered and slippery.
The lake effect snow bands will slowly start to drift northward tonight and weaken as winds become a little more westerly.
Visibility will be suddenly reduced to near zero at times in heavy snow and blowing snow. Travel is expected to be hazardous due to reduced visibility. Rapidly accumulating snow could make travel difficult over some locations.
