People in the London, Ont., region woke up to a blanket of snow and the flurries kept on falling throughout the day Friday.
Global News Radio 980 CFPL’s weather specialist John Wilson says as much as 18 inches, or 45 cm, of snow fell between 9 p.m. Thursday and 3 p.m. Friday. Environment Canada says another five to 10 cm is possible before snow squalls turn to flurries Friday evening.
A snow squall warning for London-Middlesex was lifted shortly after 5 p.m. Friday.
