Snow squall watch in effect for:
    •    Elliot Lake - Ranger Lake

Conditions are favourable for lake effect snow squalls to develop from Lake Superior today.

Lake effect flurries continue to affect the Agawa - Lake Superior Park region today with local amounts in the 5 to 10 cm range possible. The lake effect snow is expected to become more organized late this afternoon with snow squalls likely to develop and continue tonight. Any persistent bands may give local accumulations of 15 centimetres in 12 hours.

Travel may be hazardous due to sudden changes in the weather. If you must travel, keep others informed of your schedule and destination and carry an emergency kit and mobile phone.

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.
