Alerts for: Victoria County

Watches

10:49 AM AST Wednesday 21 November 2018
Snow squall watch in effect for:

  • Victoria County

Long lived snow squalls are expected to develop. Under the snow squall bands, visibilities will be significantly reduced due to the heavy snow combined with blowing snow, and snow will quickly accumulate.

A cold and gusty westerly flow will develop on Thursday which may give snow squalls and reduced visibility in blowing snow. Currently 5 to 10 cm of snow is forecast but higher amounts are possible especially over the highlands.

Snow squalls cause weather conditions to vary considerably; changes from clear skies to heavy snow within just a few kilometres are common. Visibility may be suddenly reduced at times in heavy snow.

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.

Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to NSstorm@canada.ca or tweet reports using #NSStorm.
