Snowy Christmas will bring risky driving conditions to Toronto, York Region

TORONTO — A continued snowfall on Christmas Day will bring risky driving conditions to Toronto and a wide swath of York Region, Environment Canada says, as the area is on track to receive 15 centimetres of accumulation.

Meteorologists ended their winter weather advisory for Halton and Peel regions early Friday morning, but kept it in place for Toronto, Vaughan, Richmond Hill, Markham, Newmarket and Georgina.

It was later ended for all areas outside of Newmarket, Georgina and northern York Region.

They said there is a possibility of black ice forming under accumulating snow in some places.

“Snowfall has begun to ease somewhat early this morning. Road conditions will continue to be hazardous this morning,” meteorologists said Friday.

In Toronto, crews were out overnight salting and clearing major roadways.

Light snowfall is expected to continue in Toronto until well into the evening, with temperatures dipping to -5C.
