Issued at 15:33 Friday 12 February 2016

Occasional Poor visibilities in sudden bursts of snowfall this afternoon and into the evening. A vigorous cold front is moving southwards across southern Ontario. Ahead of this cold front convective snowshowers have developed and are producing locally intense bursts of visibility reducing snow. At their worst visibilities could be as low as 250 metres. Motorists should proceed with caution in these heavier snow showers. The snow is not expected to linger at any one place for a long period of time thus local snowfall amounts are not expected to be much more than 5 cm. As conditions clear up later this evening bitterly cold air is expected to create extreme wind chill values after midnight. Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada.
