Watch Out for Snow Squalls in Sharon, PA

12/1/2021 (Permalink)

Snow on the road. When experiencing a snow squall, it is important to watch out for dangers of driving.

Most people from Western PA are familiar with winter storms such as blizzards, ice storms, and lake effect storms. However, there is one type of winter storm you may never have heard of until now. According to NOAA.gov, “Snow Squalls are brief, intense snow showers accompanied by strong, gusty winds. Accumulation may be significant. Snow squalls are best known in the Great Lakes region.”

When experiencing a snow squall, it is important to watch out for dangers of driving. Visibility in driving can quickly reduce and cause a higher chance of an accident. Weather.gov states, “The combination of quick reductions in visibilities and sudden slick conditions on roadways can often lead to high-speed wrecks, pileups, and subsequently injuries and fatalities. There is also a high economic impact as interstates can be shut down for hours.” It may be best to stay home when you can detect snow is heading your way. During the wintertime, be sure to check the weather daily to avoid getting caught in a storm.
