Environment Canada has issued a snow squall watch for the northern Kawarthas, including Fenelon Falls and northern Kawartha Lakes and Haliburton County.

Snow squalls are expected to develop on Wednesday evening (December 11).

Under the snow squall bands, visibility will be significantly reduced due to the heavy snow, and snow will quickly accumulate.

Between 10 and 15 centimetres of snow is possible by Thursday morning.

Travel may be hazardous due to sudden changes in the weather. Visibility may be suddenly reduced at times in heavy snow.

Public Safety Canada encourages everyone to make an emergency plan and get an emergency kit with drinking water, food, medicine, a first-aid kit and a flashlight.
