Snow-rain mix impacting Monday morning commute in Toronto, GTA

Last Updated Feb 22, 2021 at 9:35 am EST

Toronto got yet another round of winter weather as a rain-snow mix made its way through the GTA Monday morning making for a messy commute.

The band of heavy snow moved through the region in the morning, dropping between five to 10 centimetres of snow on the ground before tapering off in the afternoon.

The period of heaviest snowfall occurred between about 5 a.m. and 9 a.m.

The storm made for some treacherous driving conditions, resulting in poor visibility at times.

“Motorists are advised to exercise caution and alter their travel plans as needed,” said the national weather service.

680 NEWS meteorologist Jill Taylor says regions to the north would get hit the hardest while parts of Toronto could escape with only a few centimetres.

“Unlike the last round of snow that we had, it was light and fluffy, this time it will be heavy, wet snow to deal with,” says Taylor.

Monday’s high is expected to near 4 C.

This will be round one of winter weather this week with more snow expected on Tuesday morning and Wednesday.
