LONDON, Ont. - London is digging out after a snowstorm dumped more than 30 cm of snow on the city.

The heavy snowfall continued Sunday, with another 10 cm expected and winds reaching 50 km/h, as Environment Canada extended a snow squall warning for London and parts of southwestern Ontario.

Officials were asking drivers to stay at home while the roads are cleared.

Fall storms often pack more punch than their winter counterparts, Environment Canada meteorologist Mark Seifert said.

"These early season snow squalls are usually the worst because the lakes are still fairly warm," he said. "And the warmer the water is, combined with the colder air, the worse the snow squalls are."
