Snowy, slippery conditions on last day before holiday break

CityNews | posted Friday, Dec 22nd, 2017

The last drive to work and school before the Christmas break will be a slow and slippery one on Friday.

Several centimetres of snow fell in the GTA overnight and Environment Canada says another 2-4 centimetres could fall by the end of the day.

Areas outside of the GTA could get up to 10 centimetres of snow by this evening.

Christmas came early for several students in the GTA. School buses were cancelled for several school boards, including the Toronto Catholic District School Board and the Toronto District School Board. Click here for a full list of cancellations.

A special weather statement remains in effect for several areas of the province, including Toronto and the GTA, on the first full day of winter. Winter officially arrived just before the noon hour on Thursday.

The snow is expected to become mixed with freezing drizzle in many areas and Environment Canada says freezing rain may become an issue by tonight.

The weather agency says motorists throughout the affected regions should prepare for reduced visibility and poor driving conditions.
