More snow sweeping across southern Ontario today as Environment Canada issues a Winter weather travel advisory for the second straight day.
The snow, which began late morning will move across the province along Lake Erie and Lake Ontario from west to east through the day today. The snow will then make its way into Quebec, along the St. Lawrence.
Colder temperatures around – 6 in the GTA will feel like -16 courtesy of 40-60 km/h wind gusts.
Total snowfall amounts of 5 to 10 cm are expected by the time the snow comes to an end, but the greater concern is icy roads due to the rapid drop in temperature.
Travel may be hazardous as untreated surfaces are expected to become snow covered and icy.
Motorists should expect hazardous winter driving conditions and adjust travel plans accordingly. Consider postponing non-essential travel until conditions improve.
