0

Don’t let some sunny periods fool you, snow squalls are developing and will last through the day Saturday before another potent winter storm rolls into the area late Sunday afternoon – snow squalls will re-develop late Sunday night and last through to Monday afternoon. Total accumulation could exceed 50cm in lake effect prone areas by Monday night

Snow squall warning in effect for:

Agawa – Lake Superior Park
Sault Ste. Marie – St. Joseph Island
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, and snow will quickly accumulate.

Hazard:
Heavy snow. Total snowfall accumulations of 15 to 25 cm.

When:
Until late this evening.

Discussion:
Snow squalls have developed in the wake of a low pressure system and will persist through this evening.

Snow squalls cause weather conditions to vary considerably; changes from clear skies to heavy snow within just a few kilometres are common. Visibility may be suddenly reduced at times in heavy snow. Travel is expected to be hazardous due to reduced visibility in some locations. Be prepared to adjust your driving with changing road conditions. Road closures are possible.
