Toronto could get up to 15 cm of snow today

People in Toronto will probably be shovelling by tonight.

A special weather advisory has been put into effect by Environment Canada for the city of Toronto due to significant snowfall expected throughout the day. 

Light snow is expected to begin this morning, and will become heavy at times throughout the afternoon, continuing into the evening.

Snowfall accumulations of 10 to 15 cm are possible by the time the snow ends late tonight.

According to Environment Canada, today's snowfall is due to a developing low pressure system which will track south of the lower Great Lakes.

While the morning commute should dodge most of the storm, travel during the afternoon commute will be impacted due to accumulating snow.

Buses have already been cancelled in the Halton and Niagara regions ahead of the snow fall, but schools remain open.
