The day isn't even over yet, but today marks a record-breaking day for snowfall in Toronto. Toronto's heavy snowfall today has already reached 15 cm at the Pearson Airport, according to CP24, making it the most snowfall the city has ever seen on February 27th. The snow is now even expected to reach up to 25 cm in certain regions of the GTA, according to a new weather alert from Environment Canada.
More snow is coming to the city today before it is forecasted to stop in the evening, says Environment Canada, so it looks like the record-breaking snowfall in Toronto won't stop at 15 cm.
Not only is there significant snowfall in the city right now, but an extreme cold weather alert was also issued by Toronto's Medical Officer of Health. Temperatures in the city will feel like -17°C, and we're shivering just thinking about it.
Winter has been brutal on Toronto this season, and this latest record-breaking snowfall is just further proof. Just last month in January, Toronto also broke snowfall records when the city saw a total of 26.3 cm of snowfall from January 28th to 29th.
Toronto has been experiencing some of the wildest weather this year, and we're honestly just so ready for it all to be over. Spring, where you at? Please come through. There ain't no rest for the wicked.
Fortunately, this time around the snowstorm is not expected to last. According to The Weather Network, it will be sunny with no snow in sight and warmer temperatures tomorrow and on Friday.
Unfortunately, the snow will make a comeback to the city this weekend on Saturday and Sunday, but it'll be way less intense than today. There will be snow flurries on Saturday and snowfall of 2 to 4 cm, according to The Weather Network, which we would much rather take than today's 20 cm snow mess.
The heavy snowfall in the city today is causing some chaos in the city and on the roads. It even prompted Toronto Pearson Airport to cancel over 200 flights and delay several others.
