Winter may arrive with a vengeance this weekend with the arrival of a vigorous cold front.

Environment Canada is warning lake effect snow squalls are likely Saturday night in Northern Grey County, Southern Bruce County, Huron County and Perth County

A special weather statement says a strong northwesterly wind will bring colder air into the area, with snowsqualls expected to continue into Sunday.

Snowfall amounts of 5-10 cm are possible with some areas seeing up to 15 cm by Sunday evening.

Environment Canada says driving conditions are likely to be impacted due to poor visibility in local snow and blowing snow.
