Toronto residents could face a messy drive into work on Friday, as snow is expected to start falling just in time for the morning rush hour.

CBC meteorologist Johanna Wagstaffe said the snow will start falling at around 3 a.m., reaching full intensity by about 6 a.m. Three to eight centimeters are expected.

The snowfall will be accompanied by winds of up to 40 km/h and temperatures hovering around the freezing mark.

So far, Toronto has had almost no snow this winter.

Since November, the total accumulation has been less than 10 centimetres. The city typically sees an average of 115 centimetres of snow each winter.

Pedestrians hurt in morning incidents

Wet conditions and poor visibility may have contributed to three road incidents involving pedestrians on Thursday morning.

A woman in her 40s was struck by a pickup truck at the corner of Neilson Road and Finch Avenue at about 6 a.m. She was rushed to Sunnybrook hospital with serious injuries.

A woman was taken to a trauma centre with serious injuries after being struck by a vehicle at Yonge Street north of College Avenue.

And at about 7:20 a.m., a woman in her 60s was hit at Caledonia Road and Norman Avenue. EMS said she suffered minor injuries
