‘Significant snowfall’ to hit Toronto Sunday ahead of Monday’s lockdown

Torontonians planning on enjoying a last pre-lockdown outing on Sunday may be disappointed as Environment Canada predicts “significant snowfall” of between five and 10 centimetres will hit the GTA starting Sunday morning.

The federal agency issued a special weather statement for Toronto on Saturday, warning that travel may be impacted due to moderate to heavy snowfall. “Motorists should be prepared for winter weather driving conditions,” the statement read.

Environment Canada explained this will be due to a Colorado Low system tracking northward from Ohio.

Areas near Lake Ontario may experience lower snowfall, as the snow is expected to be wet in these regions.

The day will see a maximum temperature of 2 C and low of minus-1 C. Snowfall is expected to taper off overnight.
