Environment Canada has cancelled the snowfall warning for Toronto, Hamilton, Burlington, Oakville, Halton Hills and Mississauga and Brampton but the warning is still in effect for northern York and northern Durham regions which could get a total of 15 centimetres of wet snow by the end of the day.

Out on the roads, drivers will run into mounds of slush, some of them insurmountable and quite a bit of flooding because the slush is clogging the sewer grates.
If you have to walk anywhere, the chance of you being drenched by a passing vehicle kicking up the slush is high. On sidewalks not yet cleared, don't be surprised if you get soakers trudging through the sludgy goop.
