Snow squall watch continues for London

London, ON, Canada / 106.9 The X

Old Man Winter isn’t finished with London yet.

Environment Canada downgraded their snow squall warning to a watch for the Forest City and surrounding areas.

The agency is calling for local snowfall amounts up to 5 cm tonight and 2-4 cm tomorrow.

“Even though we expect the cold temperatures to remain into early next week. The winds are going to begin to die down,” Meteorologist Mark Schuster said. “We won’t see as much lake effect as we are going to see for the next 24 to 38 hours.”

Schuster says temperatures are dropping below average for this time of year.

“Anybody who might be traveling farther up north towards Huron, Perth, Grey Bruce, Waterloo [or] Wellington, snow squalls in these areas are going to be particularly dangerous,” Schuster said.

Drivers are reminded to be cautious if driving through heavy accumulations of snow, as it can reduce visibility.

Forecasters say Thursday will break the cycle with sunny skies and a high of 2 degrees.
