Toronto expected to get 15 to 25 cm. snow dump Monday

A snowfall warning has been issued for the Ottawa area, with 15 to 20 centimetres expected overnight and into Tuesday, with as much as 25 cm forecast for some areas.

The weather agency says we could see between 15 to 25 centimetres.

On Monday evening, there will be a 60% chance of flurries which will be heavy at times, according to Environment Canada.

"The main story is it's going to be a heck of a lot of snowfall specifically for the city of Toronto", he said.

Things will start to clear on Tuesday.

The heaviest snow is forecast to end early to mid-morning, he said.

Meredith advised that motorists prepare for a "very snowy" drive, and he said if people can delay their trips until later in the morning, that would make the drive easier.

The first round is expected on Monday morning and early afternoon, totalling 5 cm of snow.

Environment Canada warns those in Waterloo Region, Guelph, Erin, Southern and Northern Wellington County, Mount Forest, and Arthur that travel conditions may quickly deteriorate over this time period.

Lace-up the winter boots, break out the shovels and gas-up the snowblower, the GTA is about to get a heavy helping of snow over the next two days.
