Environment Canada has just issued a Special Weather Statement for Toronto.

According to the national weather agency, “significant snowfall, freezing rain or rain possible Wednesday and Wednesday night.”

The statement adds that current indications suggest that precipitation associated with a Texas Low will move into the area early Wednesday morning.

“The precipitation may begin as snow then change to rain or freezing rain or continue as snow. Total snowfall amounts of 5 to 15 cm are possible in areas where the precipitation falls primarily as snow,” it reads. “There is much uncertainty regarding the track of this low. Any change in the track could drastically change snowfall amounts and precipitation types.”

While it will reach a high of 8°C in Toronto on Tuesday, temperatures will be closer to freezing for the rest of the week.

By Wednesday, when the significant weather moves it, it will reach a high of 4°C, and the low will be -4°C.
