Quick blast of wet snow to start the week in southern Ontario

Following southern Ontario's most memorable snowstorm of the season, which brought hundreds of lightning strikes and thunder, parts of the province will see another round of snow to kickstart the work week.

Although this storm is not going to bring epic snow totals to the province, parts of southern Ontario - particularly the west end of the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) and southwest can expect to see some travel delays throughout Monday.

The clipper system, though a relatively weak area of pressure, has the potential to bring 2-5 cm of wet snow to some areas, causing slippery road conditions.

The system moved into the southwestern region of the province early Monday morning, bringing snow and possible rain to the area. The snow will then make its way into the GTA and the western shores of Lake Ontario late Monday afternoon and into the evening, just in time for the evening commute.

Take care as you head out this evening as the road conditions could become slick.

Areas around London and towards Hamilton are most likely to get the highest snowfall accumulations, possibly seeing around 5 cm.

The east end of the GTA as well as Toronto itself is looking to scrape by with less than a centimetre of snow.

The snow will wrap up during the overnight hours Monday and into Tuesday morning, leaving some gusty winds behind that will bring brisk, below-seasonal temperatures that will linger throughout the rest of the week.
