Snow Squall Watch Issued For Kawartha Lakes

KAWARTHA LAKES-A Snow Squall Watch has been issued for our area.

Under the snow squall bands, visibilities will be significantly reduced due to the heavy snow combined with blowing snow, and snow will quickly accumulate tonight into Wednesday.

Locally heavy snowfall with total amounts of 10 to 25 cm. Significantly reduced visibility at times in heavy snow.

Lake effect snow squalls are expected to develop this evening or overnight in the wake of a passing cold front and affect areas East of Georgian Bay and portions of the Bruce Peninsula. These snow squalls will likely continue into Wednesday morning before weakening or shifting South of the area according to Environment Canada.

Travel is expected to be impacted and people are encouraged to monitor future forecasts for further details.

Snow squalls cause weather conditions to vary considerably; changes from clear skies to heavy snow within just a few kilometres are common. Visibility may be suddenly reduced at times in heavy snow. Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become difficult to navigate due to accumulating snow. Consider postponing non-essential travel until conditions improve
