Environment Canada is warning a large system from the southwest United States will bring ‘significant precipitation’ to London and surrounding areas starting Friday night.
A special weather statement issued by the national weather agency on Wednesday covers all of southwestern Ontario, including London-Middlesex.
The statement did not provide a local snowfall estimate but did warn the storm system will spread snow across southern Ontario Friday night.
Environment Canada says that snow may mix with or change to rain over portions of southwestern Ontario and the Golden Horseshoe later on Saturday but other models suggest the snow could continue into Saturday night.
Poor travel conditions are expected to develop as a result of this system and motorists are being urged to adjust accordingly.
Environment Canada says drier weather is expected in most places Sunday with the exception of areas to the southwest of Lake Huron and Georgian Bay where snow squalls may develop.
