Winter is coming and it's definitely making its presence known in Ontario. It's only the first week of December and it looks like winter is coming full force to parts of Ontario. Environment Canada has issued a special weather alert today for intense snowfall in various regions of Ontario today and tomorrow. Brace yourself, Ontario, because winter is coming hard.
Environment Canada has issued a snow squall snowfall warning for several parts of northern and southern Ontario, from Niagara to Muskoka.
According to Environment Canada, snow squall watches are in effect. Ontarians can expect "formation of bands of snow that could produce intense accumulating snow or near zero visibilities" on the roads, so drive carefully.
Over 15 cm of snow is expected in multiple southern Ontario regions, including Muskoka, Parry Sound, Welland, Niagara, and Bruce and Sauble Beach, according to Environment Canada. As for northern Ontario, up to 10 cm of snowfall is expected.
If you're on the roads in these areas, make sure to be extra cautious because Environment Canada is warning that visibility may be intensely reduced and cause dangerous driving conditions.
In their alert, they are warning Ontarians that "visibilities will be significantly reduced due to the heavy snow combined with blowing snow, and snow will quickly accumulate."
Meanwhile, in the GTA, Torontonians can also expect snowfall today and tomorrow, though not as intense as the neighbouring towns. According to Accuweather, there will be snow flurries tonight and snow showers in tomorrow.
Now that snow is not just coming but full sending it, there's no better time to stay in, cozy up in a blanket and binge watch Netflix. Especially when there are so many Christmas movies to be watched!
