In case you haven’t been outside yet, Toronto is now blanketed in snow.

In fact, it’s being forecast that Toronto will receive anywhere from 5 to 10 cm of snow today, which is why Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement for Toronto.

“Snow is expected to begin early this morning in time for the morning commute. General snowfall amounts of 5 to 10 cm are likely by the time the snow tapers off this afternoon,” said Environment Canada in a statement.

Areas close to the shoreline of Lake Ontario may see more snow due to extra moisture from the lake.

Wednesday’s snowfall will have a significant impact on the morning commute, and motorists should exercise caution and allow extra time to reach their destination due to accumulating snow and lower visibilities in falling snow.

“Snow amounts are expected to be below the snowfall warning criteria of 15 cm or more within 12 hours,” reads the statement.

We’re currently sitting on the northwestern edge of a major storm system that will mostly affect the American side of the border.

Stay warm out there, Toronto.
