Toronto is not the only city under a weather advisory right now.

All of Southern Ontario is heading into the weekend with weather advisories due to the upcoming snowfall.

From Windsor to Algonquin, cities are under Environment Canada weather statements due to the “significant snowfall amounts expected Saturday through Sunday morning.”

While some areas are getting up to 25 cm of snow, Toronto is expecting about 15 cm.

According to Environment Canada’s weather statement for Toronto, “an approaching low pressure system will bring snowfall to Southwestern Ontario beginning overnight which will spread eastward to the Golden Horseshoe on Saturday morning.”

Besides the snow, some locations may transition over to periods of rain late Saturday.

The snow or rain will change to flurries overnight Saturday night.

Toronto is also currently under an extreme cold weather alert, but that is expected to end prior to the arrival of the snowstorm, as temperatures are expected to rise.

Wherever you are in Ontario, Environment Canada is advising to be prepared and adjust your driving to the changing road conditions.

“Visibilities will be reduced in areas of blowing snow, which can make travel hazardous,” it said in its advisories.

Stay safe, Ontario.
