The snow is continuing, but the warning has been downgraded. Environment Canada has changed its snow squall warning to a watch for Huntsville and Baysville. The weather service says lake effect snow squalls from Georgian Bay are likely to develop overnight and continue into tomorrow, with 15 centimetres possible in the heaviest squalls.
Environment Canada will issue a snow squall watch when the conditions are favourable for bands of snow that could bring intense accumulating snow or near zero visibility. It notes highways 400, 11 and 69 are likely to be affected, and drivers need to be careful as the weather can change suddenly.
Port Carling, Port Severn, Bracebridge and Gravenhurst are still under a snow squall warning. Environment Canada says another 10 centimetres could fall this morning before the squalls move out of the area. However, that break will be short lived as the squalls are expected to redevelop tonight and into tomorrow.
