Winter weather returns to the GTA overnight

BT Toronto | posted Friday, Mar 2nd, 2018

The month of March appears to be coming in like a lion.

A special weather statement was in effect for Toronto and most of the GTA overnight as another blast of winter swept through the area. A winter storm warning remains in place for areas west of Toronto including Niagara and Hamilton.

A rain and wet snow mix moved into the area Thursday night with snowfall amounts of between 5 to 10 cm expected by Friday morning.

“There remains uncertainty as to the exact track and intensity of the low pressure area,” says Environment Canada. “This will affect how much snow falls across the area.”

Snowfall accumulations for areas west of Oakville into Hamilton and the Niagara region are projected to be between 15 to 30 cm.

CityNews meteorologist Adam Stiles said some of the heaviest snow was expected to be seen around 2:30 a.m.

The snow is expected to taper off early Friday morning, which may mean the morning commute may not be as bad as initially anticipated.
