Snowfall warning issued for Greater Toronto Area and other parts of Ontario

Environment Canada has issued a snowfall warning for Toronto and much of the Greater Toronto Area ahead of a snowstorm that could dump as much as 15 cm of snow in some areas later today.

“Light snow is expected to begin this morning, but should intensify late in the afternoon or evening. The snow will taper off from west to east late tonight,” the warning reads.

It adds that the snow could have a “significant impact” on the evening commute in urban areas.

The snowfall warning stretch from Hamilton in the west to Kingston and Gananoque in the east around Lake Ontario. It includes Mississauga, Brampton, Vaughan, Markham, Oshawa, and other areas.

According to Environment Canada, peak snowfall rates of 2 cm/h are possible, and the storm could bring reduced visibility.

“Be prepared to adjust your driving with changing road conditions,” the warning reads. “If visibility is reduced while driving, turn on your lights and maintain a safe following distance.”

Toronto is expecting a high of -1 C today, though that will feel more like -12 in the morning and -5 in the afternoon.
