A snow squall warning remains in effect for parts of the eastern side of Lake Winnipeg as the first taste of winter weather arrives.

Environment Canada says that snow squalls will form this morning in sheltered areas of Lake Winnipeg.

Expect visibilities to be significantly reduced due to heavy snow, with 10 to 15 cm of snow possible under heavy, stationary bands that form, the warning says.

Cold air moving over the relatively warm lake waters is causing the snowsqualls to form.

Snow squalls cause weather conditions to vary considerably; changes from clear skies to heavy snow within just a few kilometres are common. Visibility will be suddenly reduced to near zero at times in heavy snow and blowing snow.

Prepare for quickly changing and deteriorating travel conditions.

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

Environment Canada says conditions should improve by this evening.
