Major winter storm brings messy mix of snow and freezing rain to Toronto and southern Ontario

TORONTO — Environment Canada says a major winter storm will bring a messy mix of snow and freezing rain to southern Ontario this weekend.

It says the system will begin Saturday with small amounts of snowfall in the southwest and the Golden Horseshoe area and up to 15 centimetres in central and eastern Ontario.

The forecaster says in a special weather statement the snow will be followed by brief bouts of freezing rain in some areas before turning to rain later in the day or early Sunday.

Temperatures are to hit the double digits in some spots later Sunday, but be followed by a cold front moving from west to east bringing cold temperatures, wind and snow flurries.

Provincial police are advising drivers to be cautious on the roads while Air Canada is waiving flight-change fees at airports in Toronto, Ottawa and Montreal.

Parts of northwestern Ontario are under snowfall and extreme cold warnings.
