Brace yourselves, Toronto. It’s winter and it’s about to snow.

Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement for the City of Toronto, stating that the city will get 5 to 10 cm of snow Thursday night into Friday.

According to the statement, snow is forecast to begin falling late Thursday afternoon with general snowfall amounts of 5 to 10 cm by the time the snow begins to taper off Friday morning.

Some areas could see locally higher amounts, possibly in the 10 to 15 cm range, under a heavier band of snow Thursday night.

Motorists should be prepared for reductions to visibility and poor winter travelling conditions Thursday evening into Friday, says Environment Canada.

The Friday morning rush hour commute could be particularly slow and messy.

The forecast for the rest of the week is showing snow all week…

So basically, it’s going to snow, Toronto. Now let’s just try not to freak out like Vancouver would.
