WEATHER ALERTS
ENVIRONMENT CANADA
***************************
Snow squall watch in effect for:

  • 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.

Snow squalls are expected to develop this afternoon and tonight.

Local snowfall amounts up to 10 to 15 cm are possible.

Travel may be hazardous due to sudden changes in the weather. Visibility may be suddenly reduced at times in heavy snow. If you must travel, keep others informed of your schedule and destination and carry an emergency kit and mobile phone.

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.

Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to ONstorm@canada.ca or tweet reports using #ONStorm.

***************************
Snow squall warning in effect for:

  • Agawa - Lake Superior Park

Snow squalls will continue today. The snow squalls will slowly shift southward this evening as winds become more northwesterly with the passage of a cold front.

Local snowfall amounts up to 15 cm are possible. Travel along Highway 17 is expected to be hazardous.

Snow squalls cause weather conditions to vary considerably; changes from clear skies to heavy snow within just a few kilometres are common. Prepare for quickly changing and deteriorating travel conditions. Consider postponing non-essential travel until conditions improve.

Snow squall warnings are issued when bands of snow form that produce intense accumulating snow or near zero visibilities.

Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to ONstorm@canada.ca or tweet reports using #ONStorm.

***************************

  • Wawa - Pukaskwa Park
  • White River - Dubreuilville

Flurries and local snow squalls are expected this morning and early afternoon. Visibility may suddenly be reduced in bursts of heavy snow. Local accumulations of up to 10 cm are possible. Travel along Highway 17 will likely be hazardous at times.

The activity is expected to shift south of the region this afternoon as winds become northwesterly.

Please note that conditions are expected to be even worse to the south of Wawa where snow squall warnings are now in effect.

Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to ONstorm@canada.ca or tweet reports using #ONStorm.
