Weather warning: What's the deal with snow squalls anyway?

Environment Canada has issued a snow squall warning for the Montreal area.

 Snow squalls are dangerous because they quickly reduce visibility to near zero.

Mounted Montreal police officers talk with people after a snow squall at the Plaisirs d'hiver on Saturday, Feb. 19, 2022.

The best thing about driving in a snow squall is you feel like the Millennium Falcon’s hyperdrive finally kicked in.

While that’s pretty awesome, your best bet is staying off the roads. The danger isn’t worth it.

Environment Canada has issued a snow squall warning for Saturday afternoon in the Montreal area.

The warnings are issued when conditions are favourable for brief, but intense, bursts of heavy snow producing near zero visibility.

Snow squalls are dangerous because they seemingly come out of nowhere. 

he Weather Network compares them to “long, narrow lines of thunderstorms.”

If you’re caught in a snow squall while on the highway, put on your hazard lights and slow down.

Do not use your high beams, which will reflect off the snow and make seeing nearly impossible.

Increase the distance between you and the vehicle ahead. Get off at the nearest exit.
