Toronto's Weather Forecast Is Dumping The First Major Snowfall Of The Season Today

Toronto's first major dumping of snow for the season is set to happen on Sunday, November 28 — and the city can expect even more snow next week.

Environment Canada has a special weather statement in effect for Toronto and they're warning of accumulating snow through Sunday.

Many parts of Ontario have seen multiple snow events in the past few weeks, but before this weekend, Toronto had yet to receive its first substantial snowfall of the season.

Environment Canada said that Sunday's weather system will likely impact road conditions.

It adds: "An additional 3 to 6 cm of snow is expected by this evening. It is possible however, that some communities could see locally higher amounts due to easterly winds off of Lake Ontario."

Anyone thinking of driving on Sunday is told to "expect hazardous winter driving conditions and adjust travel plans accordingly."

According to The Weather Network, wind gusts of 30-50 km/h could start to blow some of that snow around, causing poor visibility for drivers.

Temperatures will remain near or below seasonal through Sunday and into next week.

In a video, TWN meteorologist Jaclyn Whittal said daytime highs of 4 C are generally expected at the end of November for Toronto but on Sunday, you can expect highs of just zero.

The wind chill overnight into Monday will make things feel more like -11 C before temperatures recover to a below-seasonal 1 C high on Monday.

As the province continues to ride out the aftermath of the major snowstorm it just experienced, and blankets of snow still cover the roads and sidewalks, Torontonians may want to keep up with seasonal bylaws that can result in some pretty steep fines.

From not shovelling the sidewalk on time to parking in the wrong spot, here are some of the penalties that Torontonians could face when it snows.

On Wednesday, Ontario's weather is calling for an incoming clipper system that will bring gusty winds, slippery wet snow, and freezing drizzle to parts of the province, with motorists being warned to prepare for dangerous travel conditions.

According to The Weather Network, the system will bring 5 to 10 centimetres of snow to Snowbelt regions. Spots surrounding the Ottawa and Parry Sound areas will be hit the hardest.

Sometimes when you're craving your favourite takeout meal from a restaurant, nothing can get in your way.

An Ontarian must have been feeling that way about Nicey's Eatery, a Caribbean restaurant in Toronto, on Monday because they braved the province's snowstorm and icy roads on foot just to go to the eatery.

Starting on Wednesday, the City of Toronto will be tagging and towing abandoned or illegally parked vehicles to ensure snow clearing efforts can continue without obstruction.

According to a news release on Tuesday, cars parked or stranded on designated snow routes will be moved to make room for city crews and equipment as they continue with snow removal across the city.
