Environment Canada Issues Winter Weather Travel Advisory For Toronto Due To Snow
Commutes will be affected.
Drivers in the Greater Toronto Area are urged to use extra caution on the roads today as significant flurries from Lake Ontario will bring reduced visibility.
Environment Canada has issued a winter weather travel advisory for Toronto, York and Durham as upwards of 10 cm of snow is expected to fall throughout these regions by the end of Monday. Commuters can expect icy roads in the morning and afternoon, which may lead to several delays.
Although the temperature will be warmer than previous days with a high of -3 C on Monday and -8 C on Tuesday, wind chills will make it feel closer to double-digit negatives. Keep a shovel handy, because you can expect to be clear a lot of snow off your driveway when you get home later.
If you can limit your travel today or avoid it altogether, you should do so as the roads will be quick to generate black ice conditions and a band of flurries will make it hard to see while driving.
