Up to 10 cm of snow expected for Wednesday morning commute

Toronto, get prepared for a messy commute this Wednesday, as Ontario is about to receive what The Weather Network is calling the biggest snowfall of the year.

According to The Weather Network, a Texas Low has developed early this week and will track towards the Great Lakes region late Tuesday through Wednesday morning.

This means that while the heaviest snow will stay south of the border, it’s predicted that we will see “widespread snow across the Golden Horseshoe with snow totals of 5 to 10 cm.”

The snow will develop during the predawn hours on Wednesday and will impact the morning commute.

Niagara is the closest to the Texas Low, so it will be impacted the most. However, from downtown Toronto to Oshawa, the east flow off of Lake Ontario will enhance snow totals.

“Both of these regions should see near 10 cm. Snow amounts will drop off to near 5 cm for the northern Golden Horseshoe,” forecasts The Weather Network.

As we head into the weekend, Toronto is going to continue seeing snow, and The Weather Network is forecasting that a wide range of snow will accumulate across the region, with totals exceeding 10 cm for parts of the Golden Horseshoe this weekend.

So remember to bundle up, and if you’re driving, give yourself extra time and be prepared for unexpected delays.
