Lake effect snow squalls are expected Wednesday in Greater Sudbury, Environment Canada said Tuesday.

The city is under a snow squall watch, with lake effect flurries and local snow squalls expected to develop Wednesday midday and persist through Thursday morning.

“Local snowfall accumulations of 15 to 25 cm will be possible overnight with an additional five centimetres possible Thursday before the squalls move out of the area,” Environment Canada said. “Snow squall warnings will likely be required.”

Should the squalls hit Greater Sudbury, visibility may be suddenly reduced at times in heavy snow. Highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become difficult to navigate due to accumulating snow.
