Snow, ice pellets on the way Tuesday, Environment Canada warns

11 February 2019

Monday is expected to see morning flurries and a risk of freezing drizzle.

Between five and 15 centimetres of snow and ice pellets are expected to accumulate in some areas, along with ice buildup from freezing rain.

The weather agency issued a statement on Sunday for the London, Strathroy and Middlesex area, warning of Tuesday conditions.

The chance for snow overnight starts after 1 a.m. Monday, Feb. 11 with little or no accumulation expected. We are also tracking a wintry mix moving in form the south and west that could bring some freezing rain to areas this morning as well, so be cautious on the roadways.

The statement warned that the storm could have "a significant impact" on travel in the region. The best chance for periods of steady and even moderate snow will be between 10 PM Sunday and 3 AM Monday.

A Winter Storm Watch is in effect from 2 PM Tuesday until 1 AM Wednesday.

Wednesday: Partly sunny and comfortable.

DANGEROUS ICE STORM POTENTIAL: As snow begins to try to transition to rain, we are watching the potential for a dangerous ice storm to unfold late Monday night into Tuesday.

Temperatures should reach the low 40s Sunday afternoon, so any hazardous conditions should be gone rather quickly.

Friday: Cloudy with scattered showers likely in the afternoon.

"Snowfall amounts may be higher should the switch over to freezing precipitation not occur", added the statement.
