As the City is still working hard to clear the ravages of last week’s winter storm, another snow-related warning has been issued for Monday by Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC). That’s right more snow is headed our way. At 10:53 AM EST Monday 24, January 2022, a Winter Weather Travel Advisory has been issued by Environment and Climate Change Canada for Toronto and York-Durham, with 5 to 10 cm of snow expected to fall in the area by this evening.

Snow will be heavy at times today with peak snowfall rates of 1 to 2 cm per hour is possible, according to ECCC.

As a result, there will be reduced visibility on the roads due to snow and occasional blowing snow.

The snow is expected to fall into this evening especially for areas along the lake shore as a result of Southwesterly winds over Lake Ontario.

Travel may be hazardous due to sudden changes in the weather. Be prepared to adjust your driving with changing road conditions. If visibility is reduced while driving, turn on your lights and maintain a safe following distance.

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.
