Snow Squall WatchIssued at 22:10 Wednesday 13 November 2019
Moderate snow squalls occurring tonight.
Weak to moderate snow squall bands have developed over the southern Gulf of St. Lawrence and will gradually diminish through the night into Thursday morning, as a ridge of high pressure moves over the Maritimes.
Travel under these bands may be hazardous at times due to snow, blowing snow, and strong westerly winds.
Visibility may be suddenly reduced at times in heavy snow. 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.
Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to PEstorm@canada.ca or tweet reports using #PEStorm.
