Snow squall warning in effect for: Agawa – Lake Superior Park
Snow squall watch in effect for: Searchmont – Montreal River Harbour – Batchawana Bay
Snow squalls are expected. Under the snow squall bands, visibilities will be significantly reduced due to the heavy snow combined with blowing snow, and snow will quickly accumulate.
Snow squalls are expected to develop this morning.
Local snowfall amounts of 15 cm per 12 hours are likely in the strongest snow squalls before they squalls shift south overnight tonight. Sault Ste. Marie is expected to see some lake effect or snow squalls develop overnight, about 5cm in total is expected by Thursday morning with blowing and drifting snow.
Snow squalls cause weather conditions to vary considerably; changes from clear skies to heavy snow within just a few kilometres are common. Travel is expected to be hazardous due to reduced visibility in some locations. Consider postponing non-essential travel until conditions improve.
