South Bruce, ON
Alerts in Effect
Snow Squall WarningIssued at 19:05 Friday 15 December 2017
Lake effect flurries have affected much of Bruce and Grey counties today. However, the most intense activity is expected this evening and tonight, particularly over the Bruce Peninsula. Snowfall rates of several cm per hour are possible in bursts of heavy snow.
Total local snowfall amounts of 15 to 25 cm are likely by Saturday morning.
Strong and gusty winds will result in occasional blowing snow today and into tonight, especially in exposed areas near Lake Huron and Georgian Bay.
The activity will diminish Saturday as a ridge of high pressure builds in.
Snow squalls cause weather conditions to vary considerably; changes from clear skies to heavy snow within just a few kilometres are common. Travel is expected to be hazardous due to reduced visibility in some locations.
Snow squall warnings are issued when bands of snow form that produce intense accumulating snow or near zero visibilities.
