Good morning.

Light snow flurries are making for slick driving conditions across the Greater Toronto Area this morning. Just before 6 a.m., CBC traffic reporter Laurie Turcotte reported that both the TTC and GO Transit were running on time. She also said drivers are reporting slippery road conditions, particularly in the city's west end.

Environment Canada has issued a snow squall warning for Hamilton and Peel region, which includes Burlington and Oakville. There's also a snow squall watch for the Niagara Peninsula. Environment Canada posts its weather alerts, watches and warnings for southern Ontario here. 

Much of the U.S. northeast is bracing for a large snowstorm, so if you're heading to Pearson airport to catch a flight today, check your flight status before heading to the airport. Pearson tweeted this morning that "operations are running normally." The airport's online departures board listed some delays and cancellations to a handful of destinations in the northeast. The storm will also affect Canada's East Coast, where flight cancellations are expected.

In Toronto, the city's cold weather alert remains in effect, with the forecast calling for a high today of -6 C. It's expected the early morning flurries will end before noon with a 40 per cent chance of more flurries later in the day.
