It snowed overnight! Get those boots on and drive carefully
More snow expected with a high of zero as the London region gets first snow
Snow squalls took aim at London overnight, with the northeast getting the most snow.
The London International Airport is reporting 25 cm on the ground, with other parts of the city getting around 10 cm.
The north and northeast parts of the city are where road plows have also been concentrating their efforts, said John Parsons, London's road manager.
"The salt trucks have been out since 8:30 last night on main roads and bus route as those are our priority, and they will continue working throughout the day," Parsons said.
"Additional resources may be brought on as accumulation builds throughout the day."
But the worst of the city's first taste of winter appears to be over, at least for now.
London and Middlesex County are still under a snow squall warning, but Environment Canada says London will only get another 5 cm. Most of that is expected to fall in the morning.
There wasn't enough accumulation on small local streets to warrant sending in the snow plows, Parsons said.
"That could change later today," he added.
City crews maintain 3,625 kilometres of roads and 1,500 km of sidewalks. The city's goal is to clear all streets within 24 hours of a snowfall ending.
Officials are reminding Londoners to give themselves extra time to get to where they're going as traffic is slower than usual.
Environment Canada says this weekend will be well below the seasonal daytime high of 8 degrees. Instead, Saturday's temperatures will hover around 2 degrees.
