It started bad, and now Toronto’s winter weather is getting worse.

A snowfall warning has been in effect for the City of Toronto since Monday morning.

Following a Special Weather Statement released yesterday, Environment Canada upped the amount of snowfall expected to hit the city, and issued a warning to kick off the week.

It is now forecasting snowfall with total amounts of 15 to 20 cm by tonight.

And while classes commenced as usual earlier, seems like most colleges and universities are cancelling them for the afternoon.
