A Snow Squall Warning is currently in effect for the following Muskoka locations:
- Port Carling – Port Severn
- Bracebridge – Gravenhurst
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 coming inland off of Lake Huron and Georgian Bay are expected to develop this morning.
Local snowfall amounts of 15 cm are expected in the heaviest snow squalls.
Dangerous winter driving conditions from near zero visibility in bursts of heavy snow and blowing snow are expected in the snow squalls.
Snow squalls are expected to continue through tonight into Thursday.
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. Rapidly accumulating snow could make travel difficult over some locations. Road closures are possible.
