Snow squall watch in effect for areas near Lake Huron

Snow squall watch in effect for areas near Lake Huron”

After unusually mild, wet weather for much of October, Environment Canada is warning of Southwestern Ontario's first snow squall of the season tonight followed by frigid, near record-breaking weather on Friday.

More central areas like Waterloo Region, Oxford-Brant and southern Wellington County will also likely see snow, although with significantly less accumulation.

Snow squalls are expected southeast of Lake Huron and Georgian Bay from the night of November 9 into November 10. Temperatures will drop and scattered rain showers will become flurries as the front passes.

They're reminding drivers that travel could be risky, and they're urging people to be prepared with emergency plans and kits.

The national weather agency says squalls are expected to develop Thursday evening and into Friday.

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 visibility.

The average high for this time of year is 8 C.
