Snow squall watch issued for Barrie and area

Marie to south of Wawa, with snow squalls occasionally reaching Highway 129 between Ranger Lake and Chapleau.

Lake-effect snow squalls coming inland from a strong southwest flow off of Georgian Bay will continue today and tonight, with local snowfall amounts of 15 centimetres expected in the heaviest snow squalls.

Overnight we'll see more periods of snow and local blowing snow, accumulating 2 cm of snow before ending in the morning.

Unsafe winter driving conditions from near zero visibility in bursts of heavy snow and blowing snow are expected in the snow squalls.

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

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.

It had to come eventually, and according to Environment Canada eventually is today. The snow squalls will slowly drift southward out of the region this afternoon as winds veer into the northwest and weaken.
