Toronto is expected to see “brief, but intense” periods of snow on Tuesday morning, Environment Canada warned.
The city is under a snow squall watch. Flurries are expected to develop early in the morning, with a brief period of heavy snow to come around 9 a.m. or 10 a.m.
Along with the snow, strong wind gusts of up to 70 km/h are expected resulting in “reduced visibility,” Environment Canada’s website said.
“The heavy snow mixed with the strong gusts, we’re looking at maybe half an hour of some near zero visibility,” said Steven Flisfeder, a meteorologist for Environment Canada.
“It’s going to make for a bad combination.”
In that short period of time, 2 to 5 cm of snow could fall.
