Toronto could get 2 cm of snow Wednesday
A special weather statement is in effect for Toronto as a result of an incoming winter-like storm.
In the statement Environment Canada says a "weak disturbance" will be behind the little bit of snow or rain that falls on Southern Ontario today, but tomorrow a stronger low pressure system from the United States is expected to bring more severe weather.
The rain we'll see overnight is expected to change back into snow mixed with ice pellets by tomorrow afternoon, with a risk of freezing rain by Wednesday evening.
Environment Canada says that northern sections of Toronto could get two centimetres of snow accumulation tomorrow.
A mix of freezing rain and snow is expected to continue Thursday depending on the temperature.
