Snow squall warning in effect for:
Agawa – Lake Superior Park
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.
Snow squalls are expected to develop this morning and persist into early this evening.
Under the heaviest snow squall bands local snowfall accumulations of 15 cm in 12 hours are likely.
Travel is expected to be hazardous due to reduced visibility. Be prepared to adjust your driving with changing road conditions.
Snow squall warnings are issued when bands of snow form that produce intense accumulating snow or near zero visibilities.
Snow squall watch in effect for:
Searchmont – Montreal River Harbour – Batchawana Bay
Snow squalls are likely to develop today.
Under the heaviest snow squall bands local snowfall accumulations of 10 to 15 cm in 12 hours are likely.
Travel may be hazardous due to sudden changes in the weather. 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.
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.
