Further snowfall amounts in the heaviest snow squalls will range from near 5 cm inland to 15 cm near Lake Superior.
The weather service says conditions are ripe for snow squalls off the eastern edge of Lake Erie starting late Wednesday afternoon and especially this evening. Strong and gusty southwesterly winds up to 60 kilometres per hour are also expected today and some localized power outages are possible. Visibility may be suddenly reduced at times in heavy snow.
Lake effect snow squalls off Northern Lake Huron are occurring today.
Overnight we'll see more periods of snow and local blowing snow, accumulating 2 cm of snow before ending in the morning.
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. The threat of lake-effect snow squalls will come to an end this evening as winds veer to the northwest and weaken.
