Well, it may not be 25 cm, but it’s going to start snowing in Toronto today and it’s not going to stop until tomorrow night.
Environment Canada’s latest update (as of 5 am this morning) on the approaching winter storm is that we can expect closer to 10-15 cm of snow to fall in Toronto between now and tomorrow night.
The heaviest snow will take place overnight tonight, possibly turning Tuesday morning’s commute into a nightmarish drive.
Meanwhile, the City of Toronto has also maintained an Extreme Cold Weather Alert for today:
