WEATHER WARNINGS, WATCHES and ADVISORIES

Snow Squall Watch

  • Barrie, Collingwood, Hillsdale

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.

Lake effect snow squalls are expected to develop Thursday morning.

Snow squalls from Georgian bay will affect the regions early Thursday morning and will dissipate by Thursday evening. Local snowfall accumulations of 10 to 15 centimetres are possible.

Snow squalls cause weather conditions to vary considerably; changes from clear skies to heavy snow within just a few kilometres are common.
