Squall Warning

  • Barrie – Collingwood – Hillsdale

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.

Lake effect snow squalls will end early this afternoon.

Additional snowfall amounts up to 10 cm. Radar at 10:30 A.M .shows a few local snow squalls in the vicinity of Collingwood extending southeastward. Local blowing snow is also expected leading to reduced visibilities. Snow squalls are expected to weaken near noon.

Snow squalls cause weather conditions to vary considerably; changes from clear skies to heavy snow within just a few kilometres are common. Travel is expected to be hazardous due to reduced visibility in some locations.

If visibility is reduced while driving, turn on your lights and maintain a safe following distance. Be prepared to adjust your driving with changing road conditions.

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