Dec 20, 2016 @ 20:14 – The Travel Advisory for Greater Sudbury & Vicinity, Espanola, Killarney, North Bay and West Nipissing has been lifted.
Snow Squall Warning ended for Wawa, White River and Pukaskwa.
Snow squall warning has been issued for Searchmont, Montreal River Harbour and Batchawana.
Dec 20, 2016 @ 13:27 – Snow Squall warnings continue for Schreiber, Marathon, Pukaskwa Park, White River, Wawa, Lake Superior Park and Agawa.
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.
The snow squalls will continue today with amounts expected of near 15 cm in the most persistent snow squalls. An additional 5 to 10cms are possible before they taper off into a few flurries later this evening.
Environment Canada warns that visibility will be suddenly reduced to near zero at times in heavy snow and blowing snow. If visibility is reduced while driving, slow down and watch for tail lights ahead, and be prepared to stop. Rapidly accumulating snow could make travel difficult over some locations. Consider postponing non-essential travel until conditions improve.
There is a Winter Travel Advisory for Greater Sudbury & Vicinity, Espanola, Killarney, Manitoulin Island, North Bay and West Nipissing.
Environment Canada warns that periods of snow combined with southwest winds gusting to 60km/h may cause occasional reduced visibilities due to blowing snow at times this afternoon and early evening. Conditions will improve later this evening.
