Environment Canada says rain will change to snow during the day today and that we can expect winter-like conditions as we approach the afternoon and make our way into the evening.
The weather system is expected to bring Toronto 10-15 millimetres of rain and most parts of the GTA will receive between 25-30 millimetres. A cold air mass will then bring us about two to four centimetres of snow.
According to officials, flooding is possible in some areas, but for those who are making their way north, as much as 20 centimetres of snow is possible in that region.
Monday will be a chilly day with a high of – 5 in the forecast, but the morning windchill is expected to make it feel like it’s -17.
Meantime, a snow squall watch is in effect for Newmarket, Northern York Region, Northern Durham Region, Georgina, Uxbridge, Lindsay and the Kawartha Lakes.
Temperatures falling this afternoon/evening. Watch for possible flash freeze. TO Transportation has 200 salt trucks standing by.
