Total snowfall amounts of 15 to 25 cm are now expected by Thursday morning. The original prediction was 10 to 15 cm but Environment Canada is saying those numbers may be going up.
Additionally, Toronto could see more snow arriving Friday as “strong snow squalls with heavy snow and blowing snow are expected to develop Thursday afternoon east of Lake Huron and may extend into the Golden Horseshoe. These snow squalls will likely continue through Friday.”
