Winter storm watch in effect for:
- Cloud Bay - Dorion
- Kakabeka Falls - Whitefish Lake - Arrow Lake
Significant winter storm with 10 to 20 cm of snow and blowing snow on Sunday.
Snow, heavy at times, is expected to begin after midnight Saturday night and taper off late Sunday night. The latest analysis suggests that total snowfall amounts of 10 to 20 cm are likely by Sunday night.
In addition, winds will gradually strengthen on Sunday with gusts to 60 to 80 km/h possible Sunday afternoon through Monday morning resulting in very poor visibility in blowing snow.
Rapidly accumulating snow and near zero visibility in heavy snow and blowing snow will make travel hazardous.
There is still some uncertainty regarding the track of this developing winter storm originating in Texas. Should the track of this storm shift, the corresponding axis of heavy snow could also shift considerably. Environment Canada meteorologists will continue to monitor this developing situation closely.
Avoid travel if possible. Visibility may be suddenly reduced at times in heavy snow.
Winter storm watches are issued when multiple types of severe winter weather are expected to occur together.
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.
