Ontarians are being told to brace themselves for snow and freezing rain on Sunday as a weather system makes its way over the border.
A low pressure system approaching southern Ontario from the American Midwest will bring a wintery mix of precipitation beginning Sunday, forecasters say.
Environment Canada issued a special weather statement on Saturday evening warning of snow that could mix with ice pellets and eventually change into freezing rain by late afternoon. The storm is expected to hit Toronto and surrounding regions.
As much as 10 centimetres snow is expected in the northern part of the province.
The freezing rain in the GTA is expected to turn to rain by the evening with temperatures rising to 5 C by Monday morning.
The agency reports that the storm’s track may change, but it’s expected to affect a large portion of Ontario stretching from the southern tip of Lake Huron to the eastern portion of the province.
