EC – Snow Squall Watch

Mar 7, 2017 @ 20:07

5:38 PM EST Tuesday 07 March 2017
Snow squall watch in effect for:

  • Wawa – Pukaskwa Park
  • White River – Dubreuilville
  • Agawa – Lake Superior Park
  • Searchmont – Montreal River Harbour – Batchawana Bay

Persistent 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.

Snow squalls may develop tonight but are expected to be brief. More persistent snow squalls are expected to develop Wednesday morning, and may continue into Thursday for some areas.

Snowfall amounts up to 15 cm per 12 hours are possible in snow squalls.

Snow squalls cause weather conditions to vary considerably; changes from clear skies to heavy snow within just a few kilometres are common. Travel may be hazardous due to sudden changes in the weather. Consider postponing non-essential travel until conditions improve.

Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to [email protected] or tweet reports using #ONStorm.
