Snow hits Mississauga ... and it's coming for Toronto

Snow hits Mississauga ... and it's coming for Toronto

A special weather statement has been issued for Southern Ontario with 20-25 centimetres of snow expected to envelop much of the region, according to Environment Canada.

"Cold Arctic air already in place over the Great Lakes will ensure it will be a dry fluffier snow, creating some blowing snow issues as winds pick up during the storm," read the special weather statement. 

Mississauga has already had a taste of what's headed their way.

Residents woke up to a winter wonderland Saturday morning after two to five centimetres of snow fell overnight, according to Environment Canada.

But while Mississauga experienced slippery roads and reduced viability, most of Toronto got off scot-free.

Meteorologist Rob Kuhn said some of the city's east end got about a centimetre of snow, with more falling in the Oshawa area. 

Snow coming Monday and Tuesday

Toronto doesn't get off that easy, though. There's more snow coming for the GTA Monday night and Tuesday — and Kuhn said nobody's safe from the white stuff.

Expect about five to 10 centimetres, he said.

"That's going to make sure everything's white," he said.

Peel Regional Police said that despite the snow, they did not see a considerable increase in road accidents.
