Snowfall Warning issued for Toronto combined with messy mix of wintry weather


Toronto has been issued a Special Weather Statement this evening through to Friday along with a snowfall warning for Thursday afternoon into Friday morning. The messy wintry conditions begin tonight in the Toronto area with rainfall from 15 – 25 mm which could turn to freezing rain and ice pellets.

This will be followed up with heavy blowing snow Thursday afternoon and night. Snowfall accumulations of 10 10 20 cm are expected, so yes you will need to show if you are living in the GTA.

ECCC also warns of possible power outages, reduced visibility and slippery driving and walking conditions.

This nasty bought of weather is caused by “a low pressure system is expected to track northeast across Lake Erie and Lake Ontario Thursday night which will bring a messy mix of wintry precipitation to southern Ontario.

Precipitation will begin as rain this evening and transition to snow Thursday afternoon. Freezing rain and ice pellets are also possible Thursday morning and afternoon.

As the track of the low pressure system remains uncertain, precipitation timing and amounts may change.

All of southern Ontario including Ottawa has been issued similar special weather statements and most areas have also been issued snowfall warnings, however some areas including many cottage and ski areas are expected to receive less snow than those all along Lake Ontario and in the Ottawa region.

Be prepared to adjust your driving with changing road conditions. Rapidly accumulating snow could make travel difficult over some locations. Visibility may be suddenly reduced at times in heavy snow. Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become difficult to navigate due to accumulating snow.

Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to ONstorm@ec.gc.ca or tweet reports using #ONStorm.
