Snowfall expected to intensify overnight in Toronto

If you spent any time outside today in Toronto, it probably felt like you were walking in a winter wonderland. That's because it's been snowing all day and the white stuff will probably continue falling all through the night.

Environment Canada issued a snowfall warning for the city of Toronto (and surrounding areas) because 15 centimetres are expected.

"Snow, at times rather heavy, will continue to fall throughout the evening into the overnight hours," reads the Environment Canada warning. "It is forecast to become lighter towards morning before tapering off near dawn around the Golden Horseshoe and a little later Monday morning farther east."

However, you might want to take caution when you're heading out tomorrow morning.

"Commuters can expect a slow go of it Monday morning, as roads are expected to be snow-covered or slushy and potentially slippery. The only exception may be right along the Lake Ontario shoreline where roads may be wet with temperatures slightly above the freezing mark," the warning continues.

Despite our relatively warm fall, it looks like everyone's dreaming of a white Christmas right about now - you might as well take advantage of it!
