Toronto, surrounding areas to see 'trace amounts' of snow

Snow squall warnings are in effect for selected areas to the north and west of Toronto, while a special weather statement affects a much broader swath of the province on Monday evening.

Environment Canada says that much of Southern Ontario could see some flurries this evening, though in most cases they will only drop "trace amounts" of snow.

The areas that could see snowflakes tonight include the Toronto and Hamilton areas, as well as Peel, Halton, Durham and York regions, in addition to dozens of other towns and cities located all the way to Ottawa.

But selected areas southeast of Lake Huron and Georgian Bay, however, could see snow squalls dump 10 centimetres of snow or more in the hours ahead.

As of Monday evening, the following areas north of the GTA were under either a snow squall watch or warning:

- Barrie, Collingwood and Hillsdale (snow squall warning)

- Midland, Coldwater and Orr Lake (snow squall watch)

- Innisfil, New Tecumseth and Angus (snow squall warning)

- Shelburne, Mansfield and northern Dufferin County (snow squall watch)

- Newmarket, Georgina and northern York Region (snow squall watch)

Environment Canada is reminding drivers to be wary of the conditions of untreated roads tonight and tomorrow.

Police are also reminding the public to be careful. They also want to remind drivers to ensure their vehicles are properly equipped for winter weather.
