Environment Canada has issued a snow squall watch for London and the surrounding region.
The watch covers London-Middlesex, Strathroy, Parkhill, Komoka, Sarnia-Lambton, Huron-Perth, and Elgin.
The national weather agency say heavy flurries off Lake Huron are affecting areas between Grand Bend and Sarnia on Tuesday.
Environment Canada says snow squalls are forecast to develop Tuesday night and persist into Wednesday. Snowfall amounts of 10 to 15 cm per 12 hours will be possible.
“We really see that the winds will start to align to really form the squalls probably early morning Wednesday,” said Environment Canada warning preparedness meteorologist Etienne Gregoire.
“Potentially we’re looking at some narrow bands that could produce some significant amounts.”

Environment Canada adds travel may be hazardous due to reduced visibility as a result of heavy snow.
“If you commute from north of London into London you could run into these things (hazardous conditions) tomorrow morning, and the drive home may be even worse as these bands intensify through the day tomorrow,” said Gregoire.
“It’s the first time this season that we’ll have a stretch of weather that is actually going to look like winter,” he added. “We’ve had the odd cold day here and there so far, but nothing like we’re about to see for the next four, five days.”
