A bitterly cold day on the way for southern Ontario


The region can expect cold, snowy conditions to stick around Thursday.

“An arctic cold front blasting through the region brought a significant drop in temperature through the day on Wednesday. Wind chills close to the minus 15 mark,” said CTV News London Meteorologist Julie Atchison. “So, feeling bitterly cold, and that’s where you’ll start your Thursday.”

Atchison said it’ll be around minus 7 degrees at 8 a.m. Thursday, with a high of zero degrees expected by about 4 p.m.

“Snow squalls in Midwestern Ontario have returned. Snow squalls are expected to linger Thursday morning.”

She said these squalls could see anywhere from 10-20 cm of snow accumulate.

Conditions will be quieting down by Thursday evening, and more mild temperatures return this weekend.

Grey-Bruce and Huron-Perth are currently under a snow squall warning, while a special weather statement for London-Middlesex previously in effect, has come down.
