Some of us see A LOT of snow overnight as squalls continue

Depending on where you live you're either stuck in your driveway or using your wipers to brush a few flakes off the windshield.  

Not much in the way of accumulation through much of Grey Bruce - another couple of cm here and there - but certain areas got walloped overnight especially along Southern Georgian Bay from Meaford to Collingwood where as much as 10 to 30 cm reportedly fell and is still coming down.  

That's going to mean a snowy drive along 26 this morning to say the least.  

Other areas that saw the heaviest squalls overnight were parts of the Peninsula and down along the Lake Huron Shoreline through Saugeen Shores and again south of Kincardine... and Goderich.  

You're going to find Highway 21 snow covered with poor visibility at times.  

Much of Grey Bruce is still under a snow squall warning and as the winds pick up throughout the day some of those hardest hit areas could accumulate another 10 - 30 cm  while the rest of us are looking at anywhere between 5 to 10.  

No matter how you slice it... its early in the season for this much snow.   

 

As of 5am Friday morning  

Snow squall warning in effect for:

  • Hanover - Dundalk - Southern Grey County
  • Owen Sound - Blue Mountains - Northern Grey County
  • Southern Bruce County 

Snow squalls continue today.

Local snow squalls will continue today. Strong winds may accompany these bands resulting in blowing snow at times.

The worst conditions are expected to remain west of the city of Barrie and Highway 400.

Local snowfall accumulations of 30 to 40 cm will be possible under the most intense bands by the time the snow squalls weaken later today.

Snow squalls cause weather conditions to vary considerably; changes from clear skies to heavy snow within just a few kilometres are common. Prepare for quickly changing and deteriorating travel conditions.

 

Weather advisory in effect for:

  • Bruce Peninsula - Sauble Beach - Tobermory

Winter Weather Travel Advisory in effect for today.

Flurries and local snow squalls are expected to continue intermittently through the day today. While the heaviest snow squalls are expected to remain south and east of the Bruce Peninsula, portions of the Peninsula can expect locally heavy snow and reduced visibilities at times making travel difficult. Motorists are advised to watch for quickly changing weather conditions and adjust their driving accordingly.

Total local snowfall accumulations of 5 to 15 cm remain possible by the time the flurries and snow squalls come to an end later today.
