Getting to work on Tuesday morning could be especially tricky in the GTA.
Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement for Toronto, the GTA and much of southern Ontario, as well as a winter weather travel advisory
The national weather agency said a Colorado low is expected to move over southwestern Ontario Monday night, bringing with around 10 centimetres of snow on Tuesday.
The snow is expected to change to rain later in the day.

680 NEWS meteorologist Jill Taylor said the snow will start overnight, “so the morning commute tomorrow could be quite messy with three centimetres of snow already on the ground.”
She said another 5-10 centimetres is expected throughout the day on Tuesday before it changes over to rain around 3 p.m. or 4 p.m.
Caledon, Newmarket, Barrie, Orillia, Peterborough and other eastern parts of the province could see in excess of 10 centimetres of snow by Tuesday night.
Environment Canada also issued a travel advisory on Monday for the Highway 401 corridor between Oshawa and Belleville, warning of lake-effect snow. It was lifted just before 9 a.m.
Meantime, the extreme cold weather alert for Toronto, which the city’s acting medical officer of health issued on Jan. 5, was lifted around 7:30 a.m. on Monday.
