Weather advisory in effect for:

  • Newmarket - Georgina - Northern York Region
  • Uxbridge - Beaverton - Northern Durham Region

Winter weather travel advisory in effect for Saturday into Sunday morning.

Sudden near zero visibility in heavy snow and blowing snow.
Snowfall accumulations near 5 cm over some locations.

Now through to Sunday morning.

Snow squalls are expected to develop in strong southwesterly winds early Saturday morning. These scattered snow squalls are expected to suddenly cause visibility to be reduced to near zero. Snowfall amounts near 5 cm are possible by the time snow squalls taper to flurries Sunday morning.

Travel is not recommended. Visibility will be suddenly reduced to near zero at times in heavy snow and blowing snow. Snow squalls cause weather conditions to vary considerably; changes from clear skies to heavy snow within just a few kilometres are common.
