The national weather agency says snow is expected to fall throughout the day, sometimes mixing with ice pellets or freezing rain, before tapering off to drizzle on Tuesday evening. In total, 5 to 10 cm is possible..

The rain and snow mix may leave roadways and sidewalks slippery.

As well, school buses have been cancelled for the day in Middlesex, Oxford and Elgin counties as well as the Red Zone. Buses in the City of London were not impacted.

Very mild conditions are forecast for the rest of the week in London, with a high of 4 C on Wednesday, 7 C on Thursday, and 5 C on both Friday and Saturday. Even the overnight low is expected to stay at or above freezing until Saturday night.
