Watches

10:15 PM EST Wednesday 07 December 2016
Snow squall watch in effect for:

  • Haliburton - Minden - Southern Haliburton County
  • Oxtongue Lake - Fort Irwin - Northern Haliburton County

A period of near whiteout conditions possible Thursday.

A cold front is expected to move through the regions from north to south Thursday. This will bring the threat for a period of near whiteout conditions in snow and blowing snow off northern Lake Huron and Georgian Bay Thursday morning or early afternoon, and off southern Georgian Bay by mid afternoon.

Snow squalls cause weather conditions to vary considerably; changes from clear skies to heavy snow within just a few kilometres are common. Travel may be hazardous due to sudden changes in the weather. Visibility may be significantly and suddenly reduced to near zero.

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 ec.cpio-tempetes-ospc-storms.ec@canada.ca or tweet reports to #ONStorm.
