Snow is coming.

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

The Advisory was issued following the special weather statement released on Monday evening.

According to Tuesday’s Advisory, 5 to 10 cm of snowfall is expected with higher amounts occurring locally, nearing 15 cm.

“Rapidly accumulating snow may make travel difficult. Visibility may be suddenly reduced at times in heavy snow and local blowing snow. There may be a significant impact on rush hour traffic,” reads the Advisory.

Additionally, Environment Canada warns that snow, which will be heavy at times, will affect areas near the west end of Lake Ontario.

“Easterly flow over the relatively warm waters of Lake Ontario will help to locally boost snowfall amounts.”

The Advisory is in effect until this evening.

As well, Environment Canada is calling for a high of -2°C, but with the windchill, it will feel more like -9°C, so make sure to bundle up if you need to head out.

By this evening, temperatures will drop to -7°C, although it will feel like -10°C.

Stay safe, Toronto.
