It looks like it might be a snowy week for learners in Toronto. Students going back to in-class sessions in the GTA have been warned to expect at least 25 cm of snow this week.
The Environment Canada warned of at least 25 cm of snow in Toronto, and the GTA, this Sunday. This even as Toronto and its environs expect to be hit by intense precipitation.
The initial weather system will be available overnight or early Monday and is expected to deliver at least 5 cm of snow by the afternoon. All areas in proximity to Lake Erie might see about 10 cm of precipitation, with about the same amount expected much later.
