Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement for Toronto on Christmas Day.
While the city woke up to the beauty of a fresh blanket of white snow, strong westerly winds could cause that snow to blow, and resulting in reduced visibility in areas.
More flurries remain in the forecast for both Boxing Day and December 27.
It’s currently -5°C in Toronto with the windchill making it feel more like -15°C. Make sure to stay safe and warm out there, Toronto.
And Merry Christmas!
