'Clipper system' dropping into our region Tuesday


It’s been a dreary start to December, and although there will be a brief reprieve on Wednesday with some sunshine, overcast skies will continue to blanket the Forest City.

According to CTV News London Meteorologist Julie Atchison, a weak clipper system will be dropping to the south and could generate some flurries heading into the afternoon.

"I'm not expecting a lot of moisture, you can see a few light flurries showing up on our next 24-hour model, but the bulk of the rain/snow mix will stay well off to the south. If we see anything at all in and around Chatham and Sarnia it will be under 2cm."

Looking ahead to the weekend, Athicson said there will be a warming trend as we head toward the weekend.
