Snow & freezing rain in the forecast Friday evening

Environment Canada issues special weather statement for Toronto & GTA

While still not technically winter, it sure feels that way.

Environment Canada has issued a 'special weather statement' for Toronto, the GTA and parts of northern Ontario, ahead of a system moving in overnight on Friday.

A low pressure system is heading our way from the Prairies, that will bring snow, rain and a good chance of freezing rain.

The City of Toronto could see as much as 5 cm of snow starting around 11 p.m. Friday and into Saturday morning. It could also bring freezing rain considering that the low will hover near zero.

Areas further north into cottage country, like Grey-Bruce, the Kawarthas, and further east like Kingston and Brockville, could see between 5 and 10cms of snow.

Snow will also reach the Ottawa Valley and Cornwall, dumping 10-15 cms.
