Ontario's Snow Is Creating Awful Driving Conditions & More Is On The Way

Ontario's snow arrived with a vengeance on Tuesday morning with motorists being warned to use caution due to awful driving conditions.

According to The Weather Network, an Arctic air drifting down into parts of Ontario this week will cause a messy mixture of lake-effect rain and snow showers through Tuesday and Wednesday.

Affected areas will include Huntsville, Orillia, and Coboconk, which are currently at the most risk for snow squalls Tuesday morning, with popular spots like Muskoka following close behind.

In fact, Bracebridge OPP reported that they had responded to 20 motor vehicle collisions between Monday and early Tuesday, which officers believe could've been prevented if drivers had adjusted to changing weather conditions.

Police are now asking drivers to take precautions and give themselves extra travel time to prepare for the increasingly icy roads.

Snow is expected to continue throughout the day, and some regions near Thunder Bay could even see up to 20 centimetres.

Ontario's winter weather is set to be some of the worst in 25 years

The Weather Network has revealed that the province is expected to see more wintry weather this season, especially leading up to the holidays.

In fact, it could be some of the worst weather in 25 years with an "abundance of lake-effect snow" expected.

The Farmer's Almanac has predicted that Toronto is expected to have a cooler than normal November, with temperatures sitting around -2 C.

Snow is also expected to hit the 6ix multiple times throughout the month. So it might be time to pull out your winter jacket.
