The threat of snow is no joke, especially in April.

If you’ve put those winter jackets away, you might want to bring them back as Toronto is expected to get some snow this week.

According to The Weather Network Meteorologist Doug Gillham, snow is expected to start tonight and continue into Wednesday morning with flurries and gusty winds.

Near Lake Ontario, from Burlington to Toronto, five to eight centimetres of snow is expected to accumulate. Within the GTA, about five centimetres is expected.

As for driving conditions, it may be a difficult journey on the roads Wednesday morning in the GTA and Niagara region, according to TWN.

“Through the evening and overnight hours, snow will spread across southern Ontario from the south and west, with heaviest snowfall rates south of the 401 corridor and especially across the Niagara peninsula,” said Michael Carter, a meteorologist at TWN.

“The snow will continue Wednesday morning, leading to difficult travel conditions on expressways and local roads.”

Temperatures are expected to drop from 7°C with a feels like temperature of 3°C on Tuesday to a low of 4°C in the evening, feeling more like 1°C. Overnight wet snow kicks in as numbers dip into negatives at -1°C, feeling more like -6°C.

According to Environment Canada, snow may become heavy at times starting after midnight.

Heading into Wednesday morning, temperatures will remain relatively the same, with continuous snow feeling like -7°C.

“Wet snow and freezing temps risk damage to early blossoms and crops,” state TWN.

Though eerily similar to what Calgary experienced over the past weekend, a drastic change in weather is not expected.

Rest assured, this snowy weather isn’t expected to linger but rain might be in the forecast for the weekend.
