London, Ont. forecast for March 22, 2024

A winter weather travel advisory is in effect for the region as an approaching system has its eyes set on southern Ontario.

The advisory is in effect for much of southwestern Ontario, including London-Middlesex, Elgin County, Huron-Perth, Oxford-Brant and Sarnia-Lambton.

“A big winter weather system is on the move,” said CTV News London Meteorologist Julie Atchison. “[Even though] it’s spring, we have snow in the forecast.”

In London, approximately 5 to 10 cm of snowfall is expected, with locally higher amounts being possible, and with the risk of reduced visibility in areas of heavier snow. Along Lake Erie, there will be a risk of freezing rain in the evening.

The timing of the weather system is expected to begin with light snow in the morning, with intensification expected late in the afternoon or evening. The snowfall will taper off late Friday.

“We could see some heavy accumulations [of snow], enough that you’ll need to brush your cars off and perhaps clean off your driveway,” Atchison added. “It’s not going to last too long, but it will perhaps mess up your plans on Friday.”

Environment Canada warns that motorists should expect hazardous driving conditions, and adjust travel plans and driving accordingly, including slowing down, watching for taillights and maintaining a safe following distance.
