Alerts for: Kingston - Prince Edward


3:41 AM EST Friday 12 February 2016
Snow squall watch in effect for:

  • Picton - Sandbanks Park

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.

Bands of lake effect flurries and snow squalls off of Lake Ontario may affect the region beginning towards dawn and potentially persisting until this evening.

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.

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