December 2, 2010 — Heavy amounts of snow are piling up in parts of Ontario, thanks to squalls.

Snow squalls have been rolling in off the Great Lakes this week, making for poor visibility and slick road conditions in parts of Ontario.

By the time all is said and done, places like Sault Ste. Marie and Searchmount could see upwards of 30 cm of snow, while Parry Sound, the Muskoka region and Wiarton could get up to 15 cm. 5 - 10 cm of snow could also fall around Fort Erie.

“These streamers will continue throughout the day Thursday and Friday,” says Mark Robinson, a meteorologist at The Weather Network. “There's a slight chance that some flurry activity could reach the Greater Toronto Area if the winds are strong enough off Lake Huron.”

This week, much of Ontario was drenched with heavy rain, thanks to an intense low pressure system. The same storm brought heavy amounts of snow to northwestern Ontario.
