Snow squall warning in effect for:
Agawa – Lake Superior Park
Searchmont – Montreal River Harbour – Batchawana Bay
Persistent snow squalls are expected. Under the snow squall bands, visibilities will be significantly reduced due to the heavy snow, and snow will quickly accumulate.
BRISK WEST WIND WILL CONTINUE TO GENERATE LOCALIZED HEAVY FLURRIES AND SNOW SQUALLS OFF OF LAKE SUPERIOR TODAY AND INTO TONIGHT.
THE HEAVIEST SQUALLS MAY PRODUCE SNOWFALL AMOUNTS OF 10 TO 15 CM PER 12 HOURS ALONG WITH REDUCED VISIBILITIES.
THE SNOW SQUALLS WILL SHIFT LATE SUNDAY MORNING AS WINDS BECOME MORE SOUTHWESTERLY.
Snow squalls cause weather conditions to vary considerably, changes from clear skies to heavy snow within just a few kilometres are common. Be prepared to adjust your driving with changing road conditions. Public Safety Canada encourages everyone to make an emergency plan and get an emergency kit with drinking water, food, medicine, a first-aid kit and a flashlight.

Snow Squall Warnings are issued when bands of snow form that produce intense accumulating snow or near zero visibilities.
