A winter storm arrived in the Greater Toronto Area Saturday, bringing snow and wind.
Environment Canada issued a snowfall warning Friday, and that warning remains in effect Saturday afternoon. Up to 15 more centimetres of snow is in the forecast for some areas of the city.
“Persons in or near this area should be on the lookout for adverse weather conditions and take necessary safety precautions,” the weather agency said.
The Ontario Provincial Police are dealing with a number of collisions on the regions’ highways, and asked drivers to be careful.
