Snow is coming.

Environment Canada has issued a “Winter Weather Travel Advisory” for Toronto, in effect for Wednesday.

According to the advisory, a narrow band of lake effect snow is expected to develop off of Lake Ontario Tuesday overnight and move inland early Wednesday morning.

“This band will be over the Burlington area early Wednesday morning and slowly shift northwards, reaching the southwestern section of the City of Toronto by mid-morning. Through the afternoon, the band will drift south, reaching downtown Hamilton in the evening,” it states.

Environment Canada says that snowfall amounts of five to 10 cm are possible by Wednesday overnight with snowfall rates of several centimetres per hour likely.

Additionally, Environment Canada is calling for a high of -4°C, but with the windchill, it will feel more like -17°C, so make sure to bundle up.

Some warmth is on the way, as Saturday is calling for 3°C, although it will be accompanied by a chance of flurries or rain showers.
