Squall Warnings And Winter Travel Advisory Today Throughout The Region

 

Snow Squall Warnings for

London – Parkhill – Eastern Middlesex County

Strathroy – Komoka – Western Middlesex County

Huron Perth

Sarnia Lambton

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.

Snow squalls this afternoon and evening.

A stiff and cold northwesterly flow of fresh arctic air will generate lake effect snow bands off of Lake Huron this afternoon and evening. Local snowfall amounts of 15 to 20 cm are expected in the strongest snow squalls if they are able to lock in for a few hours late this afternoon or this evening. Otherwise, snowfall amounts of 5 to 10 cm will be common.

Hazardous winter driving conditions are anticipated. Motorists should drive according to the road and weather conditions and allow extra time to reach their destination.

The lake effect snow will slowly taper off to a few flurries overnight tonight as winds diminish.

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

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.

 

Weather advisory in effect for:

Oxford Brant

Halton Peel

Guelph – Erin – Southern Wellington County

Kitchener – Cambridge – Region of Waterloo

Mount Forest – Arthur – Northern Wellington County

Winter weather travel advisory in effect for this afternoon and evening.

Lake effect flurries and brief snow squalls will dump fresh snow across the region this afternoon and evening. Snowfall amounts will range from a couple cm to locally as high as 10 cm.

In addition, strong northwesterly winds will whip up freshly fallen snow and cause sudden very low visibility in blowing and drifting snow.

Poor winter driving conditions are anticipated. Motorists should drive according to the road and weather conditions and allow extra time to reach their destination.

The flurries and brief snow squalls will taper off later tonight as winds diminish to light.

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.
