More snow on the way

Parts of the region are on the verge of another snowfall.

Environment Canada issued a travel advisory shortly after 2 p.m. Tuesday, saying heavy snow was expected in parts of the region, including London and eastern Middlesex, Oxford, Huron and Perth counties. Some areas could see up to 10 centimeters of snow.

“An approaching low pressure system will move over Lake Erie tonight, bringing snow to much of southern Ontario. Snowpack is likely to increase from Lucan to Peterborough, reducing visibility in heavy snow, resulting in snowfall close to 10cm, ” said a statement from the Bureau of Meteorology.

According to Environment Canada, areas outside the bulletin are likely to experience snowfall with close to 5 centimeters.

The snow is expected to move through Tuesday night and continue overnight into Wednesday morning. As snow can cause roads to become slippery and visibility sometimes reduced, drivers are advised to adapt their driving habits to changing road conditions.

For some areas it will be the first major snowfall event of the season, with London and surrounding areas receiving their first dose of winter snowfall over the weekend, with more than 10cm in some places.
