This is the last week of winter, with spring slated to begin on Thursday. But that's only according to the calendar.

There's potential for some very wintry weather on Wednesday, with a mix of an icy mix of precipitation in store for the GTA moving into the end of the week. See the up-to-date forecast here.

It begins with a risk of freezing rain starting west of city during morning commute on Wednesday.

CBC meteorologist Jay Scotland said, by mid-morning, the wet, icy weather will push east toward Durham.

"I'm not ruling out the potential for some icy precipitation, freezing rain and ice pellets into the downtown and south of Highway 401 before the switch over to rain."

The wind might be as powerful as 50 km/h by Wednesday night. 

Moving into the weekend, flurries are in the forecast before it's sunny — but still chilly — on Saturday.

This is nearing the end of what has been a bad winter for much of Toronto. Early snow in November, the ice storm over Christmas, record low temperatures throughout January and February have wreaked havoc on utilities, wildlife and roadways in the city.
