Snow squall warning issued for London

London, ON, Canada / 106.9 The X

Heavy snowfall is moving into the Forest City on Friday.

Environment Canada has issued a snow squall warning for London, Parkhill, Strathroy, Komoka as well as Eastern and Western Middlesex County.

“We do have a cold front that is approaching from the north,”┬áMeteorologist Mark Schuster said. “Once it goes through, winds will switch to the northwest and that will pull a lot of moisture off of Lake Huron.”

Forecasters say snow squalls are expected to intensify by Friday. The agency says snowfall amounts of 10 to 15 centimeters are expected by Friday morning.

Environment Canada says travel can be dangerous as visibility could be reduced in heavy and blowing snow.

“Once you get to Lambton County, conditions should improve very quickly,” Schuster said. “If you are driving east towards the city of Woodstock, this is where it could be very dangerous driving.”

He adds that conditions could close down parts of local 400-series highways and Highway 21.
