Snow, freezing rain headed for the GTA

NEWS STAFF | posted Wednesday, Feb 20th, 2019

A special weather statement is in effect for the region, ahead of a system that’s expected to move in Wednesday afternoon.

Environment Canada said snow will arrive around noon and then change to freezing rain this evening.

“Freezing rain or freezing drizzle will then change to occasional rain or drizzle near midnight as temperatures rise above the zero degree mark,” the national weather agency said in its statement.

680 NEWS meteorologist Jill Taylor said snow will develop around 2 p.m. with around two centimetres expected to fall. The freezing rain will start at 7 p.m. and change to rain at 9 p.m.

As the temperature nears the 0 C mark, there could be times when the snow will mix with the freezing rain or rain.
