Snow squall watch issued for our region
Environment Canada has issued snow squall watch for our region.
Conditions will become favourable for the development of snow squalls off of Lake Huron beginning this evening and off Georgian Bay by Wednesday.
Rapidly accumulating snow, very poor visibilities in snow and blowing snow, and sudden changes in driving conditions are the primary hazards associated with snow squalls.
Local snowfall amounts of 15 cm per 12 hours, along with visibilities reduced to near zero, will be possible in the strongest snowsqualls.
Driving conditions are thus expected to become hazardous once the snow squalls develop.
