Snow squall warning in effect for:
- Searchmont – Montreal River Harbour – Batchawana Bay
Snow squalls are expected to develop this evening. Local snowfall amounts of 15 cm are likely by Thursday morning. The snow squall activity is forecast to continue through Friday.
Prepare for quickly changing and deteriorating travel conditions. Travel is expected to be hazardous due to reduced visibility in some locations. If visibility is reduced while driving, slow down, watch for tail lights ahead and be prepared to stop. Road closures are possible.
Snow squall warnings are issued when bands of snow form, that produce intense accumulating snow or near zero visibilities.
- Agawa – Lake Superior Park
Snow squalls are expected to develop this evening. Local snowfall amounts of 15 cm in 12 hours are possible.
Snow squall activity will likely continue through Friday as cold northwesterly winds pick up moisture from Lake Superior.
Visibility may be suddenly reduced at times in heavy snow. Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become difficult to navigate due to accumulating snow. Road closures are possible.
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.
