The numbers are in – and they’re not overly impressive.
As advertised, the Greater Toronto Area saw anywhere between 15-to-20 centimeters of snow from this system, which moved in late Tuesday.
“A little bit higher further to the east with 18 centimeters in Scarborough.” Meteorologist with Environment Canada Etienne Gregoire told AM640 News.
To no surprise, Barrie got hit the hardest, with 31 centimeters of accumulation.
Gregoire was quick to point out this was the most significant winter storm we have seen in the GTA so far this season – and that’s saying something. “Before this storm, the total around the GTA was only 33 centimeters. So this particular storm gave us about two thirds of what we’ve already seen this winter.”
The good news is this snow won’t stick around too long as temperatures are expected to climb above the freezing mark by the weekend according to Gregoire.
“By early next week we’ll be getting close to double digit highs.”
