Winds die down, some roads reopen, more snow likely in East Lambton


Conditions are beginning to improve across the region.

After two days of high winds and snow, the snow squall warning has ended in Sarnia Lambton. But Environment Canada is predicting up to 15 centimetres of snow is still possible mostly in Eastern Lambton County.

Meantime, road crews are trying to clean up after high winds blew light snow over roads all day yesterday.

Highway 402 westbound from London to Watford has now reopened and many of the roads in northern Lambton around Grand Bend have reopened as well. In many places the roads are track bare but passible.

The cold and snow was enough to postpone some activities however as several churches in the region decided not to hold Sunday services.

We’re still under an extreme cold warning with the temperature expected to dip to -24 C tonight and a wind chill of -32 C.

Family Day promises to be a pleasant albeit cold day with Environment Canada calling for a sunny cold day with a wind chill of – 31 C.
