Snow squall watch issued for much of the area

A snow squall watch has been issued for parts of Durham Region, York Region, Kawartha Lakes and Simcoe County Sunday (Jan. 9).

According to the post from Environment Canada, snow is expected to begin in the afternoon and carry into Monday afternoon or evening. Snowfall rates of 10 cm over 12 hours are possible.

“A sharp cold front will move through the area today ushering in very cold Arctic air. Snow squalls are expected to develop over Lake Huron and Georgian Bay this afternoon and finally taper off on Monday,” it reads.

“Travel may be hazardous due to sudden changes in the weather. Visibility may be significantly and suddenly reduced to near zero. Road closures are possible.”
