UPDATE Sunday Morning: The Snow Squall Watch has been ended
6:18 AM EST Saturday 27 January 2018
Snow squall watch in effect for:
- Wawa – Pukaskwa Park
- White River – Dubreuilville
Brief, intense snowfall is expected to develop. Under the snow squall, visibilities will be significantly reduced due to the heavy snow.
A brief but intense snow squall, associated with a fast moving cold front, will cross the regions late this afternoon or early this evening.
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.
