meaning of weather alert

"Issued at 04:44 Tuesday 26 December 2017
The intense snow squalls have reached Midland to Lake Couchiching and will continue to drift to the south today. Snow squalls will persist today with additional significant amounts possible. Some areas may receive 15 to 25 cm. Snowfall rates of several centimetres per hour are likely under the most intense bands.

Snow squall conditions near Georgian Bay are expected to persist for much of the week due to the presence of a very cold Arctic air mass.


Visibility will be suddenly reduced to near zero at times in heavy snow and blowing snow.

Snow squall warnings are issued when bands of snow form that produce intense accumulating snow or near zero visibilities."
