Collision avoidance and lane alert turned off?

This afternoon these two systems lite up showing they were off. 5 minutes later the lights went off. Same thing happened later in the day, but for about 1 minute.

There was reasonably heavy snow at the time. Is this what is supposed to happen?

Yes. It's even covered in the EyeSight Owners Manual. (Who woulda' thought?) Heavy snow will do it. Heavy rain will do it. Fog will do it. If you can't see well, EyeSight can't see well either.

What @ammcinnis said.

Also happens to me when I use the front windscreen defogger. The blast of air will mist up the windscreen for about a minute but will clear up very quickly. Eyesight cannot see through the mist and will let you know when it is inoperable and when it'll work again.

I had this happen to me for the first time last weekend during a torrential downpour, despite driving in very heavy rains on a number of occasions. (It's rained a lot in the DC area this year.) Fortunately, I vaguely remembered reading about this on this forum, so I wasn't overly concerned, and Eyesight started right up once the rains let up.
