Environment Canada is advising you to leave early for work this morning because the commute is going to be a slow one. 

Snow has been blanketing roads and highways overnight, with accumulations ranging from 2 to 10 cm across the GTA. The snowfall is expected to end in Toronto at about 6 a.m. and in Durham Region at about 8 a.m.

There is also a special weather statement in place for the GTA, excluding the City of Toronto, warning of winds and blowing snow. Wind gusts are reaching 50 km/h.

"We're expecting some gusty winds to develop ... that's going to cause some blowing snow and low visibilities," says Environment Canada's Rhea Alson.

"If you're out early commuting to work ... take it easy, give yourself maybe some extra time Monday morning."

Snow squalls, meanwhile, are developing off Lake Huron. Some areas along that shore are under a snow squall warning this morning.

The temperature is also on its way down. It is expected to drop to minus 21 early Tuesday morning, with a windchill of minus 34.
