Snow squall watch in effect for:
- Searchmont – Montreal River Harbour – Batchawana Bay
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 off of Lake Superior are expected to develop this evening and continue into Saturday. Local 10 to 15 cm snow per 12 hours are possible.
Travel may be hazardous due to sudden changes in the weather. Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become difficult to navigate due to accumulating snow. Consider postponing non-essential travel until conditions improve. Public Safety Canada encourages everyone to make an emergency plan and get an emergency kit with drinking water, food, medicine, a first-aid kit and a flashlight.
Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to [email protected]canada.ca or tweet reports to #ONStorm.
