Let it Snow, Toronto
Up to 25 centimetres of snow is expected to fall across Toronto and the GTA on Friday morning, for the city’s largest snowfall in over five years.
Environment Canada issued snowfall warnings earlier this week, which will remain in effect for the weekend. Meanwhile, CityNews reports the city of Toronto has also issued an extreme weather alert, and also made more shelter beds available for the homeless.
An estimated 10,000 pounds of salt will be spread across the city’s roads on Friday, and several schools, colleges, universities and buses have cancelled or postponed its routes. According to CityNews, the biggest single-day snowfall recorded at Pearson International Airport was on Feb. 25, 1965 — with 39.9 centimetres.
While the weather outside may not be as severe as that record-breaking day, stay alert.. And stay safe.
