Environment Canada issues ANOTHER special weather statement for the City of Toronto

Dec 16 2016, 9:34 pm

Yesterday, as you know, was pretty rough in Toronto.

First, we woke up to a winter travel advisory despite sunshine in the sky, then we got snow smoked just in time to make our commute home a living nightmare.

Well, sadly, today isn’t starting off much better. Despite it being Friyay in the city, Environment Canada is once again back to ruin our dreams warn us of significant snowfall heading our way this evening and overnight:

Another significant snowfall on the way tonight into Saturday.

A Colorado low is expected to trek towards Southern Ontario tonight, with snow spreading across much of the region this evening. Snow will continue overnight into Saturday morning. Snowfall amounts of 5 to 10 centimetres are likely with a few locales receiving in excess of 10 cm. The snow is forecast to change to rain on Saturday as mild air pays a brief visit. The rain will then change back to some snow Saturday night as colder air returns in the wake of the low, with perhaps a couple more centimetres of snow possible.

This snow is expected to cause deteriorating winter travel conditions Friday night and Saturday.

If yesterday was any indication of what roads and travel will be like, we suggest you stay in bed, pull the covers over your head, and pretend that you’re just not there today.
