It is going to be a wish come true for those dreaming for White Christmas.
A pair of low pressure systems – a clipper, and a low tracking south of the lower Great Lakes – is expected to bring widespread 5-10 cm of snow across southern Ontario, and 10-15 cm in lake enhancement off Lake Ontario, just in time for Christmas.
Environment Canada predicts that residents in most of southern Ontario will see a white Christmas as a low-pressure system is expected to bring five to 15 centimetres of snow by Monday morning.
The snow will intensify later in the evening, especially in the GTA where a “snowfall warning is in effect.”
The statement reads, “While the winter wonderland will be lovely to see come Christmas Day, it could contribute to challenging travelling conditions for those visiting family and friends over the holidays.”
“A Texas low is gathering strength this morning and will race towards us approaching the speed of Rudolph later today. It will transport snow into Southern Ontario beginning [Sunday] afternoon.”
It’s recommended those flying out of Toronto check the status of flights at Toronto Pearson International Airport and Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport.
Visibility is expected to be limited making travel challenging.
