Winter officially arrives Thursday and it is coming in like a lion.

A special weather statement is in effect for Toronto and the GTA, ahead of a potentially dicey drive home and an even worse Friday morning commute for the last day of work before the holidays.

Environment Canada said up to 15 centimetres of snow is possible for the GTA by Friday.

According to the weather agency, the snow will start Thursday afternoon. Around 5-10 centimetres is expected to be on the ground by Friday morning. Another five centimetres of snow is possible later in the day.

There is also a risk of freezing drizzle throughout the day.
