WEATHER WARNINGS, WATCHES, and ADVISORIES

Squall Warning

  • Orillia, Midland

Lake effect snow off of Georgian Bay has become somewhat disorganized early this morning, but is expected to reintensify.

Localized snowfall accumulations of up to 15 cm are likely by late morning. In addition, gusty northwest winds will create blowing snow reducing visibility at times to near zero.

Snow squalls cause weather conditions to vary considerably; changes from clear skies to heavy snow within just a few kilometres are common. Prepare for quickly changing and deteriorating travel conditions. Visibility will be suddenly reduced to near zero at times in heavy snow and blowing snow.

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

Flood Watch

Nottawasaga Valley Conservation Authority

Flood Potential: High

Ice Jam Potential: High

The Weather Office is forecasting continuing warmer temperatures and rainfall amounts in the range of 25-35mm for Friday into Saturday.

Continued snowmelt, saturated ground conditions and runoff due to warmer temperatures in combination with the forecasted rain is expected to cause flooding in low lying and flood prone areas. Widespread flooding is not anticipated at the present time.

Watercourses will be flowing higher than normal causing local streams and rivers to become dangerous, especially in the vicinity of culverts and bridges. Children should be warned to stay away from all watercourses

This Flood Watch will be in effect through Monday February 27, 2016.
