Ending the last week of February with more snow!

A winter weather travel advisory is now in effect as the Toronto area is expecting up to 10 cm of snow throughout Monday.

According to Environment Canada, widespread snow is expected to move across Toronto and the GTA on Monday morning, expecting somewhere between five to 10 centimetres of snow by the afternoon hours.

Though heavier snowfall is not expected to last as the day progresses, the morning commute is likely to be impacted, according to Environment Canada.

For inland areas, The Weather Network states that “pockets” of 10 centimetres are possible but, there will be some areas that see some snow mix with rain, making the total more towards the five centimetres mark rather than the latter.

“Still, snowfall rates will be heavy at times, leading to travel complications and periods of low visibility,” said TWN meteorologist Michal Carter.

TWN states that conditions are expected to still remain unsettled through the week as Tuesday may bring more snow in some areas and Wednesday with another system with a mix of rain for the southern parts of Ontario.

Temperatures throughout the week will remain relatively the same, staying on the plus side of things with Tuesday seeing 3°C, feeling more like -1°C and dropping down to -5°C on Friday.

To end off the month, by the end of the week, high pressure and fair conditions are expected to make a comeback with temperatures closer to seasonal for Thursday and Friday before climbing up again into next week.
