EC – Snow Squall Watch to the Northeast

Mar 21, 2017 @ 07:55

7:53 AM EDT Tuesday 21 March 2017
Snow squall watch in effect for:

  • Chapleau – Missinaibi Lake
  • Gogama – Foleyet

Brief, intense snowfall is expected to develop. Under the snow squall, visibilities will be significantly reduced due to the heavy snow.

Snow squalls are expected today along a cold front.

Snow squalls cause weather conditions to vary considerably; changes from clear skies to heavy snow within just a few kilometres are common.

Snow squall watches are issued when conditions are favourable for the formation of bands of snow that could produce intense accumulating snow or near zero visibilities.
