Snow squall watch issued
Environment Canada issued a severe weather bulletin for parts of southwestern Ontario on Monday morning.
A snow squall watch is in effect for London, Parkhill, eastern Middlesex County, Woodstock, Tillsonburg, Oxford County, as well as Huron, Perth, Grey and Bruce County.
Forecasters say lake-effect flurries have developed off southern Lake Huron that could bring snowfall amounts of 10 centimetres along with very poor visibility Monday evening and into Tuesday.
The fact that the water is partially ice-covered will keep snowfall amounts lower, but some areas could still see up to 15 centimetres locally.
