Snow Squall WarningIssued at 17:58 Thursday 08 December 2016
Snow squalls have intensified early this evening as a cold front moves through the regions from north to south. Local snowfall amounts near 5 centimetres with reduced visibilities to near zero at times are expected ahead of or during the passage of the cold front.
Behind the cold front snow squalls will develop in the northwesterly winds off Georgian Bay. Significant snowfall in the 15 to 25 centimetre range is likely with these snow squalls by midday Friday. Reduced visibility and hazardous driving conditions are expected. A few areas may experience snow squalls through Friday night.
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.
