Well, the first significant snow squalls of the season expected tonight through Tuesday. More so for north of the GTA (of course) with a Snow Squall Warning.

Hazards: Locally heavy snowfall with total accumulations of 10 to 30 cm. Intense snowfall rates of up to 5 cm per hour at times. Reduced visibility at times in heavy snow and blowing snow.

Timing: Tonight through Tuesday.

The first significant lake effect snow squalls of the season are forecast beginning late tonight. These snow squalls will continue through Tuesday before weakening Tuesday night.

Strong westerly winds followed by northwesterly winds will accompany these snow squalls resulting in significantly reduced visibility at times in heavy snow and blowing snow.

Snow squalls cause weather conditions to vary considerably; changes from clear skies to heavy snow within just a few kilometres are common. Visibility may be suddenly reduced at times in heavy snow. Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become difficult to navigate due to accumulating snow. Consider postponing non-essential travel until conditions improve.

Emergency DisasterNatural Disasters

Natural disasters affect thousands of people every year.

  • Severe weather, thunderstorms & lightning, tornadoes, winter storms and extreme cold
  • Floods
  • Fires

Technological & Accidental Hazards

This includes such things as nuclear power plant failuers, and hazardous materials incidents. Usually, little or no warning precedes these disasters. These hazards are escalating due to the increased number of new substances and the opportunities for human error while using these materials.

  • Blackouts
  • Hazardous materials
  • Chemical
  • Nuclear power plants


Throughout human history, there have been many threats to the security of nations. These threats have brought about large-scale losses of life, the destruction of property, widespread illness and injury, the displacement of large numbers of people and devastating economic loss.

  • Biological
  • Chemical
  • Cyber attack
  • Explosions
  • Nuclear blast
  • Radiological Dispersion
