Particular climate assertion issued for Christmas

Environment Canada expected between two and four centimetres of snow to fall on the city Saturday with more on the way Sunday

The snow will become heavy at times this evening, enhanced by a heavy snow band off of Lake Ontario.

Total snowfall amounts of 5 to 15 cm are likely across much of Southern Ontario, including the Ottawa region.

Toronto's Pearson International Airport issued an advisory amid the snowy conditions.

The City of Toronto said snow plow trucks were out overnight beginning at 11 p.m. clearing off the roads and will continue to do so until about 10 p.m.

While the snow is great news for reindeer looking to get St. Nick's sleigh safely through his Christmas deliveries, travellers bound to the ground should plan for limited visibility, and are being encouraged by Environment Canada to adjust travel plans if possible.


Be prepared for reduced visibilities at times.

It's official - according to Environment Canada, P.E.I.'s Christmas day was not only white, but flawless.

Strong southeasterly winds may also give some blowing snow.

Active weather is expected to continue throughout the week in Toronto as temperatures are expected to drop.

East Vancouver Island will see snow develop in the afternoon, with 10 cm of accumulated snow expected for Qualicum Beach to Campbell River by the late evening.
