Snow squall warning in effect for:
- Barrie – Collingwood – Hillsdale- Orillia-Midland
Snow squalls are expected. Under the snow squall bands, visibility will be significantly reduced due to the heavy snow combined with blowing snow, and snow will quickly accumulate.
Snow squalls have intensified off Georgian Bay and are coming onshore from near Wasaga Beach and Collingwood toward Angus. Snowfall accumulations of 10 to 15 cm are possible under the heaviest snow squalls today. The snow squalls are expected to shift out of the area this evening.
Snow squalls cause weather conditions to vary considerably; changes from clear skies to heavy snow in just a few moment. Prepare for quickly changing and deteriorating travel conditions. Visibility will be suddenly reduced to near zero at times in heavy snow and blowing snow. Consider postponing non-essential travel until conditions improve.
