TORONTO, ON, Dec. 27, 2021 – As many people recover from their weekend festivities, a Special Weather Statement has been issued today for Toronto, and it also includes all regions in southern Ontario and southwestern Ontario. Environment Canada warns of “Wintry mix of precipitation today.”
Light snow is forecast to arrive this morning and if you look our your window, you will see it already has. This snow is expected to continue for a few hours with up to 5 cm of accumulation possible before transitioning to freezing rain or freezing drizzle in the afternoon.
Light freezing rain or freezing drizzle may continue through much of the afternoon and into the evening. Precipitation is expected to transition to drizzle or end in the evening or overnight.
Environment Canada warns anyone out on the roads and sidewalks (so anyone who ventures outside), that “untreated surfaces may become icy as a result of freezing rain or freezing drizzle.”
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.
