Environment Canada has issued a snow squall warning  for Huntsville, Baysville, Parry Sound and the Almaguin Highlands.  A snow squall watch remains in effect for south Muskoka.
Significant snow squalls are expected to persist throughout the day today, with accumulations of 30 to 60cm by Sunday morning.

Snow squalls cause weather conditions to vary considerably; changes from clear skies to heavy snow within just a few kilometres are common. Consider postponing non-essential travel until conditions improve. Road closures are possible. If you must travel, keep others informed of your schedule and destination and carry an emergency kit and mobile phone. 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.
