Environment Canada says we are in the path of a low presure system that's going to nail the GTA and the Niagara region with a heaping of snow.

The weather agency says this system is expected to generate snow and local blowing snow on Wednesday for regions just north of Lake Erie and across the Niagara region.

Toronto and the GTA is under a special weather statement.

Snowfall accumulations will depend on the exact track of this system. At the moment, we're forecasted to get anywhere between 10-15 centimeters.

Severe Weather Meteorologist Geoff Coulsen says the storm begins moving around 5 o'clock on Wednesday morning and continue falling off and on throughout the day. The GTA will likely receive 10 cm.

But the news is worse southwest of the GTA, into the Niagara region with accumulations reaching as much as 25 cm. Those areas could get freezing rain as well.

The heaviest of the snow will hit just in time for the morning commute on Wednesday morning, so Coulsen advises you to give yourself a little extra time to get into work.

Adding insult to injury, the temperature is going to crash on Thursday, with a wake up temperature of -17.

Coulsen says this is "just the sad reminder that we have a ways to go before spring-like weather is really here."
