Morning of wintery weather puts Spring on hold...

Toronto and much of southern Ontario braces for freezing rain and snow on Tuesday

An ugly reminder of a winter just-passed will be back to haunt Toronto on Tuesday.

Environment Canada says you may even have to dig out the shovel, with as much as 5 centimetres of snow expected to fall in the city. Ice pellets will be mixed in with the snow, making the Tuesday morning commute a slippery one.

Snow will begin falling between 6 and 8 a.m in Toronto and will continue into early afternoon, with some flurries possible after that.

CP24 meteorologist Chris Potter says because the ground has been warming up, much of the snow will melt quickly.

That is not the case for some areas of the province. About 10-15 cm of snow is expected for some areas east of Georgian Bay.

You'll be smiling about the weather forecast for the remainder of April. Temperatures will climb back up to double digits for the weekend and generally hold there for the rest of the month.

      @Robbie Mack You meant Mike Harris. He'll be blamed for everything that's gone wrong including global warming, Russian invasion on Ukraine...
