Spring is just around the corner, but winter is not finished yet.

Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement for London, Parkhill, Strathroy, Komoka as well as Eastern and Western Middlesex Counties.

“By the time all is said and done by the end of the day Tuesday, it looks like total snowfall amounts might be 10 to 15cm,” Meteorologist Mark Schuster said. “This is over a 36-hour period.”

He says the snow will be accompanied by wind gusts reaching 50 kilometres an hour.

“In this case, temperatures are going to be significantly below the freezing mark,” Schuster said. “The roads are likely going to be quite poor and with the visibility reduced from the blowing snow. So driving won’t be the greatest.”

According to the agency, conditions should warm up just in time for St. Patrick’s Day.

Forecasters are expecting a high of 3 degrees for Friday.

The first official day of spring is March 20th.
