Environment Canada warns that rapidly accumulating snow could make travel difficult over some locations.

“Visibility may be suddenly reduced at times in heavy snow. If visibility is reduced while driving, turn on your lights and maintain a safe following distance,” reads today’s snowfall warning.

But don’t worry, the snow will short lived and it will be replaced with sunny skies on Thursday.
