The TTC Is Warning Of 'Major Delays' Today So You Might Want To Leave Early

If you're a regular TTC commuter, chances are your patience will be tested on Friday due to the aftermath of yesterday's winter storm causing widespread problems for the agency.

On Friday morning, the TTC revealed that some of its bus stops are out of service due to last night's heavy snow and that significant delays are expected due to icy conditions.

"Due to inclement weather, we are experiencing major delays due to icy roads," a tweet reads.

TTC Service Alerts reported that several streetcar routes were being detoured due to collisions, with shuttles buses operating.

On Thursday evening, a messy mix of rain, ice, and heavy snow plagued southern Ontario, leaving some areas with as much as 15 centimetres of snow.

Environment Canada initially put out a snowfall warning for Toronto on Friday, but it has since ended.

However, according to The Weather Network (TWN), Ontario isn't out of the woods yet.

An incoming clipper system, a low-pressure system that moves through southern parts of the country, will bring 5 to 10 centimetres of snow to regions along the shores of Lake Huron and Georgian Bay on Friday evening through Saturday morning.

Thankfully, the GTA will only get a few centimetres, so things shouldn't get any worse than they already are.

"Winds will also increase late Friday into Saturday however, with widespread wind gusts of 50-70+ km/h creating reduced visibility due to blowing snow that has recently fallen, and also with the additional snow coming with the clipper system," Kelly Sonnenburg, TWN meteorologist, warns.

If you're planning on travelling via public transit over the next couple of days, you should give yourself some extra time to get to your destination.
