BARRIO – A burst of winter weather is in the forecast for the Greater Toronto Area this week, Environment Canada says.
A special weather statement issued Monday is calling for snowfall amounts of 10 to 15 centimetres in Toronto starting late Wednesday into Thursday.
Similar alerts are in effect for Halton, Peel, York and Durham regions.
The federal weather agency says rapidly accumulating snow could cause reduced visibility and make travel difficult.
Higher snowfall amounts of up to 20 centimetres of snow are possible in some areas.
Things will be different along the Highway 401 corridor, Kennedy said, with pockets to the north and east expected to see 20 centimetres of snow or more, such as Barrie, Collingwood, and from Kingston to Cornwall.
Flurries and light snow will start around midday on Wednesday through to midnight, but could intensify in the late afternoon and impact the evening commute.
Lighter snow could carry on into Thursday and possibly affect the morning commute as well.
OR, weather analysts could have it all wrong and it could be a sunny day. It’s not like it’s never happened before…
