Toronto is about to get hit by another wave of snow.
Sunday will see 10 more centimetres of white fluff by the end of the day, Environment Canada said.
The weather forecaster issued a special weather statement at around 3 p.m. Saturday for Toronto and the GTA. Most regions east of York and Durham are under a snowfall warning, including Kingston and Ottawa.
In Toronto, the snow is expected to start Sunday morning and end in the evening. Environment Canada warns that the snowfall may be heavy at times.
Drivers can expect hazardous travel conditions, slippery roads and reduced visibility. The statement says “local blowing snow will also be a concern Sunday evening.”
There is a 60 per cent chance that periods of snow will start as early as Saturday night. Environment Canada also reports that there is a risk of freezing drizzle, as the overnight temperature will be above freezing at 2 C degrees.
The freezing drizzle may carry over into early Sunday morning as the daily high rests at 1 C.
The temperature will fall down to -5 C by Sunday night.
There will also be a strong wind Sunday evening, blowing at 40 km/h and at times gusting to 60 km/h.
