Snow Squall Watch

Issued at 21:24 Sunday 15 December 2019
Summary

Flurries at times heavy and a risk of snowsqualls are expected to develop overnight tonight and persist on Monday.

Total snowfall: locally up to 15 cm.

Maximum wind gusts: 80 to 100 km/h.

Time span: overnight tonight until early Monday evening.

Remarks: A strong westerly flow of cold air over the Gulf of St. Lawrence will cause flurries at times heavy to develop overnight tonight. Blowing snow over exposed areas is likely and there is a possibility of the development of snowsqualls giving heavy snow and poor visibility. These conditions will improve late Monday and Monday night as a ridge of high pressure approaches.

###

Travel may be hazardous due to sudden changes in the weather.

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.
