Special weather statement for Toronto with snow on the way

It’s beginning to look a little like Christmas as GTA residents woke up Monday morning to a dusting of snow, with more on the way.

Environment Canada issued a special weather statement for Toronto and parts of southern Ontario as an arctic cold front brought snow to the city on Sunday night.

The agency said an Alberta clipper low pressure area will sail across southern Ontario on Monday night into Tuesday. This will bring a general snowfall of five to 10 centimetres by Tuesday morning.

Eastern Ontario will be hit by about 12 centimetres of snow on Monday night.

Poor winter driving conditions are likely.

Meanwhile, the Barrie area was the subject of a weather warning early Sunday.

Environment Canada said snow squalls were affecting the region, reducing visibility to near-zero and coating the ground in 15 to 20 centimetres of snow in some areas.
