Snow Squall Watch For Wingham & Blyth 15cm Snow Possible

4:42 AM EST Friday 07 January 2022
Snow squall watch in effect for:

  • Wingham – Blyth – Northern Huron County

Snow squalls are expected to develop. Under the snow squall bands, visibilities will be significantly reduced due to the heavy snow, and snow will quickly accumulate.

Hazards:
Lake effect snow, with additional local snowfall accumulations of 10 to 15 cm under the heaviest snow squalls.
Reduced visibility in heavy snow.
Snow covered and icy roads.

When:
Until late this evening.

Discussion:
Flurries will continue this morning. Snow squalls are expected to move into the area later this morning and then dissipate late this evening.

Travel may be hazardous due to sudden changes in the weather. 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.

Snow squall watches are issued when conditions are favourable for the formation of bands of snow that could produce intense accumulating snow or near zero visibilities.
