Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement for Toronto, Halton, Peel, York, Durham, Niagara and Hamilton warning of blowing snow. Reduced visibility on the roads could last until Tuesday.

It’s all due to an Alberta clipper that is affecting much of southern Ontario. With the passage of a cold front, associated with this weather system, winds will increase and blowing snow will be an issue. Snow squalls are expected to develop in the northwest flow off of Lake Huron and possibly Georgian Bay in the early morning, and will continue Monday.

In Toronto, there’s a high of -5 C in the forecast, but the temperatures will plummet on Monday afternoon due to gusty winds out of the northwest, 680News meteorologist Jill Taylor said.

Monday’s low is -19 C, with the wind chill making it feel like -32 C.
