Snow squall watch in place for southern Niagara

The day starts off wet and rainy, but parts of the Niagara Region could be looking at a good dose of the white stuff.

A snow squall watch is in place for Niagara Falls, Welland, and the southern Niagara region as the temperature is expected to tumble through the afternoon.

Environment Canada warns visibility could quickly decrease if those snow squalls hit.

Snow squalls are possible around midnight tonight as cold arctic air picks up moisture from Lake Erie.

The snow could continue into tomorrow morning as well.

Local snowfall amounts near 15 cm are possible on Wednesday.
