GTA bracing for possible record-breaking snowfall

News Staff | posted Monday, Nov 11th, 2019

A winter weather travel advisory from Environment Canada remains in effect for most of southern Ontario on Monday, as the province could potentially see record-breaking snowfall.

In Toronto, 10 to 15 centimetres of snow are possible with flurries beginning in the morning. The afternoon commute is expected to be messy due to the accumulating snow.

Much of the GTA is under the winter weather travel advisory; however, Halton Region is under a snowfall warning. School buses have been cancelled in Halton but schools are open.

Halton could receive up to 25 centimetres of snow throughout the day on Monday due to gusty northeast winds of Lake Ontario. There also a chance of reduced visibility because of blowing snow.

The largest recorded snowfall in Toronto on Nov. 11 was back in 1983 with three centimetres and with the current forecast, the record could very well be broken.

680 NEWS meteorologist Jill Taylor said the snow will intensify after 8 a.m. and the brisk northeast end will make it feel like -8 by 11 a.m. Taylor said the snow will continue into the evening hours, while the windchill drops to near -15.
