London News – Snow Squall watch issued for London area

London News, London Ontario News

London News – Lake effect flurries and local snow squalls are expected to develop later this morning. Snowfall amounts of 10 to 15 cm will be possible under the most intense bands.

The snow squalls are forecast to persist through this evening in some areas.

Snow squalls cause weather conditions to vary considerably; changes from clear skies to heavy snow within just a few kilometres are common. Visibility may be suddenly reduced at times in heavy snow. Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become difficult to navigate due to accumulating snow.

Snow squall watches are issued when conditions are favourable for the formation of bands of snow that could produce intense accumulating snow or near zero visibilities.

Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to ec.cpio-tempetes-ospc-storms.ec@canada.ca or tweet reports to #ONStorm.
