Toronto and the GTA under a snowfall warning

NEWS STAFF | posted Monday, Jan 28th, 2019

A snowfall warning remains in effect for the GTA, including Toronto, on Monday.

Environment Canada said the snow is expected to start later this morning or early afternoon and continue into tonight.

“Total snowfall accumulations of 15 to 20 cm are likely, with the highest amounts expected closer to Lake Ontario where extra moisture from the lake may boost snowfall amounts,” the national weather said in its warning, which was issued on Sunday night.

The snowfall is expected to have a “significant impact” on the Monday evening and Tuesday morning commutes.

680 NEWS meteorologist Jill Taylor said around 5-10 centimetres will fall in the afternoon, with another 10 centimetres in the evening. There is also the likelihood for blowing snow with the wind gusting to 50 km/h.

The temperature will be near -7 C by this evening but the winds will not ease up. The temperature will rise overnight to near -1 C by Tuesday morning.
