Overnight snow could make for a slippery commute into work on Friday in the London area.
Environment Canada has issued a Snow Squall watch for London and Middlesex as bands are expected to develop off Lake Huron and Georgian Bay Thursday evening. A snow squall warning is in effect for parts of Huron, Perth, Grey, and Bruce counties.
“It looks like for the London area flurries will pick up in the overnight period, possibly you can get a few centimetres late overnight, but it looks like things will be its worst I would say anytime from about 5 a.m. until noon is likely the peak period for these snow squalls,” said Environment Canada meteorologist Mark Schuster.
Environment Canada is calling for 10 to 15 cm’s of accumulation in parts of London but it appears we’ll be spared the worst of the storm system. Areas further north in Huron and Perth counties could see anywhere from 20 to 30 cm of snow with this system.
