Wednesday, December 06/ 2017
Snow squall warning in effect for:
Hanover - Dundalk - Southern Grey County
Owen Sound - Blue Mountains - Northern Grey County
Saugeen Shores - Kincardine - Southern Bruce County
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.
Conditions are favourable for a period of lake effect snow squalls off Lake Huron and Georgian Bay this afternoon into this evening
Snow squalls coming inland off of Lake Huron and Georgian Bay are developing and will become more organized this afternoon.
Local snowfall amounts of 15 cm are expected in the heaviest snow squalls.
Snow squalls are expected to continue through tonight into Thursday.
Dangerous winter driving conditions from near zero visibility in bursts of heavy snow and blowing snow are expected in the snow squalls.
Snow squalls cause weather conditions to vary considerably; changes from clear skies to heavy snow within just a few kilometres are common. Visibility will be suddenly reduced to near zero at times in heavy snow and blowing snow. Rapidly accumulating snow could make travel difficult over some locations. Road closures are possible.
Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or tweet reports using #ONStorm.
