Discussion:
Snow squalls over Lake Huron are expected to migrate south into the region this evening. These snow squalls are expected to taper off to scattered flurries Tuesday morning as the winds diminish..

Snow squalls cause weather conditions to vary considerably; changes from clear skies to heavy snow within just a few kilometres are common. Visibility will be suddenly reduced to near zero at times in heavy snow and blowing snow. If visibility is reduced while driving, turn on your lights and maintain a safe following distance. Consider postponing non-essential travel until conditions improve.
