Snow squall watch in effect for:

  • Barrie - Collingwood - Hillsdale

Snow squalls and local blowing snow today and tonight.

Snow squalls are forecast to develop this morning due to cold northwesterly winds in the wake of a weak low pressure system. Local snowfall amounts of 5 to 10 cm are expected today, with an additional 5 to 10 cm possible tonight. Blowing snow will also accompany the snow squalls at times.

The snow squalls are forecast to weaken by early Friday morning.

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.
