Snow Squall Watch & Snowfall Warning – 3:53 p.m.


3:46 PM EST Tuesday 10 January 2017

Snow squall watch in effect for:

  • Agawa – Lake Superior Park
  • 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 combined with blowing snow, and snow will quickly accumulate.

Lake effect flurries and local snow squalls are forecast to begin late this evening. Conditions are expected to improve somewhat Wednesday morning, but will deteriorate again Wednesday afternoon as snow squalls develop with the passage of a front.


Travel may be hazardous due to sudden changes in the weather. Visibility may be significantly and suddenly reduced to near zero. Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become difficult to navigate due to accumulating snow.

Snowfall Warning for
Sault Ste. Marie – St. Joseph Island
Greater Sudbury and Vicinity
Elliott Lake – Ranger Lake
Blind River – Thessalon
Espanola – Killarney
North Bay – West Nipissing
Snowfall, with total amounts of 15 to 20 cm is expected.
15 to 20 cm of snow today and tonight.

Snow, at times heavy, and some local blowing snow continues to affect the region. As milder air pays a brief visit this evening, the snow may turn over to a mix of wet snow and rain for a few hours. Precipitation will then taper off to occasional light snow or flurries in the wake of the Colorado low after midnight.

Rapidly accumulating snow could make travel difficult over some locations. Visibility may be suddenly reduced at times in heavy snow. If visibility is reduced while driving, turn on your lights and maintain a safe following distance.

Snowfall warnings are issued when significant snowfall is expected.
