Like many winter days in Toronto, Environment Canada has issued a weather alert for the region.
In fact, beyond the freezing rain warning issued earlier, another alert has come out for the city of Toronto.
This afternoon’s warning is regarding tomorrow’s commute.
- City reminds residents that Coyote sightings are normal this time of year
- City warns of potential basement flooding as temperatures rise
- Toronto police issue over 4,000 tickets during rush hour enforcement campaign
According to a weather statement released by Environment Canada, there is a Winter Weather Travel Advisory in effect for Wednesday.
“Ice pellets are expected to begin over the area Wednesday morning. A risk of freezing rain or freezing drizzle will accompany the ice pellets,” states the alert. “Ice pellet accumulations of 2 to 4 cm are expected before the precipitation comes to an end Wednesday evening or overnight.”
The Wednesday morning and evening commutes will likely be affected due to the accumulating ice pellets, and the potential for untreated surfaces to become icy.
So when planning ahead, plan for an icy one… or maybe just stay indoors tomorrow.
