Snow squalls are expected to develop overnight Thursday and could potentially result in a snow spill in the London, Ont. Area Thursday evening and Friday.
Environment Canada issued a snow squall watch Thursday morning for London and Middlesex County, as well as areas north and south along Lake Huron.
The weather agency said cold air is expected to arrive late Thursday night, turning rain into snow and potentially leading to the development of snow squalls off Lake Huron.
Meteorologists say it is possible for 10 to 15 centimeters of snow to fall in the area before the gusts weaken on Friday afternoon or evening.
The weather agency said travel could be “dangerous due to sudden changes in weather”.
At 9:30 a.m. Thursday, the forecast for London, Ontario called for a high of 6 C on Thursday falling to -1 C overnight and a high of 0 C on Friday.
About 5 cm of snow is expected locally Thursday evening and an additional 5 to 10 cm is expected on Friday.
