The morning commute into the city won't be as messy as it was on Tuesday, unless you're heading in from north of Toronto.

There's a risk of flurries in the forecast overnight and also on Wednesday, according to CBC meteorologist Jay Scotland.

If you're coming into Toronto from the north — "where lake effect squalls cross parts of Highway 400, Highway 7, Highway 407, Highway 35 and Highway 115" — expect a slow drive, Scotland said.

"I see a better chance for scattered flurries through the afternoon here in the city and it will be quite cold with daytime highs in around -6 C to -7 C  across the region," he added. "Winds will also be quite brisk in the 25-35 km/h range."

Most areas of the GTA got about 10 centimetres by the time the snow tapered off Tuesday. 

Dozens of flights were cancelled or delayed at Pearson airport Tuesday, and the Greater Toronto Airports Authority is urging people to continue checking arrival and departure times before heading to the airport Wednesday.

Toronto Police said they responded to 68 crashes on the roads Tuesday morning, including 12 that resulted in injuries. And York Regional Police said they responded to 50 collisions that resulted in injuries or significant damage to vehicles.

  • A previous version of this story said that an Alberta Clipper would bring roughly five to 10 centimetres of snow overnight and into Wednesday morning. In fact, the weather system had already moved through the city and only flurries are expected Wednesday.
