LONDON, ONT. -- Environment Canada has issued a Winter Weather Travel Advisory for London and surrounding areas as a brief winter blast heads to the area.

Wet snow is in the forecast for London and surrounding area.

Included in the advisory in Middlesex-London, Sarnia-Lambton, Windsor-Essex, Elgin, Oxford, Brant, and areas to the east.

Advisories are issued when there is a concern for road conditions and visibility.

The latest forecast models having been showing the heaviest snow south of the lower Great Lakes, but there is still some uncertainty on the track of the system.
