Snow Squall Watch

Issued at 21:31 Wednesday 12 December 2018

Summary

Snow squalls are expected to develop. Under the snow squall bands, visibilities will be significantly reduced due to the heavy snow combined with blowing snow, and snow will quickly accumulate. Cold northerly winds blowing off of the Gulf of St. Lawrence will continue tonight. These northerly winds will cause flurries at times heavy with the risk of snowsqualls. Conditions are expected to improve Thursday morning as an area of high pressure approaches from the west. ### 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 significantly and suddenly reduced to near zero. 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.
