Environment Canada has dropped its snow squall watch for London, Ont., but the national weather agency has issued a winter weather travel advisory.

Environment Canada says snow squalls over Lake Huron have weakened, however bursts of snow will impact travel late Thursday afternoon and into the evening.

Heavy snowfall and blowing snow could also result in suddenly reduced visibilities at times and roadways close to the shores of Lake Huron will be affected, according to Environment Canada.

Officials are reminding motorists to be prepared to adjust their driving with changing road conditions.
