Southern Ontario has seen a lot of snow over the past few days.
First, a winter storm swept the region on Friday, bringing over 10 cm to places like Windsor and London. Driving conditions were compromised with the slippery roads and near zero visibility.
Then on Saturday, another system tracked over the Lower Great Lakes Region, dropping a decent amount of snow over the Greater Toronto Area.
The snow really started revving up during the evening hours said Elena Grigorenko, a meteorologist at The Weather Network. “That's when the majority of places saw much of the accumulations.”
Toronto's Pearson Airport recorded 8 cm while almost 10 cm blanketed Markham.
Further west, only a couple of centimetres fell.
According to Dayna Vettese, another meteorologist here at The Weather Network, “It was so localized because it appears to have been a pretty narrow band of snow that situated itself over Toronto.”
Road conditions weren't unbearable, but there were complications in areas where the roads weren't plowed.
In terms of temperatures, the low has helped to usher in milder air and moisture from the American south explains Environment Canada.
As a result, most of the precipitation that moved in on Monday is falling as rain in the Greater Toronto Area.
Meanwhile, areas north of the city faced a messy wintry mix of rain and wet snow through the morning commute. Freezing rain also forced the cancellation of several school buses across the region.
Temperatures are set to dip to more seasonal values by Monday afternoon and into Tuesday.
