Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement for much of southern Ontario as a low pressure system moves through the area Saturday into Sunday morning.

The GTA could see five to 10 centimetres of snow before the snow turns to rain later in the day and then potentially turns back to snow Saturday night.

Periods of freezing rain are possible during the changeovers but are expected to be brief, said Environment Canada.

Roads in the city will be slick this afternoon according to 680News meteorologist Harold Hosein.

“This will be fairly heavy, wet snow, so it will make for slippery walking conditions, and very slippery driving conditions. And visibility will be severely reduced during the afternoon hours,” said Hosein.

Environment Canada has issued a snowfall warning for parts of York and Durham regions, including Vaughan, Richmond Hill, and Markham.

Fifteen to 20 centimetres could fall in these areas throughout Saturday and into Sunday night.

Snowfall warnings continue for other areas in the region including Newmarket, Uxbridge, and Northern York Region.

An earlier state of emergency in Dufferin County due to blowing snow and high snow drifts was lifted Saturday morning.
