Snow squalls are expected to develop. Under the snow squall bands, visibilities will be significantly reduced due to the heavy snow, and snow will quickly accumulate.
Total snowfall: up to 10 cm in snow squalls.
Locations: Bay St. George
Time span: Wednesday.
Remarks: Snowfall amounts will be localized and dependent on how long the band of flurries and squalls remain over the same area.
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.
