As the city continues to clean up from last week’s storm, another five to ten millimetres of snow could fall on Toronto on Monday.
The snow is forecast to start in the afternoon and last until the evening, according to a winter weather advisory.
“Southwesterly winds over Lake Ontario “are” forecast to increase snowfall rates, particularly near the lake’s edge,” Environment Canada said in its advisory.
“Difficult weather conditions may cause transportation delays.” Be ready to alter your driving when the road conditions change.”
According to the weather agency, flurries will begin around noon and continue until about midnight. The temperature in Toronto is expected to reach a high of -5 C, feeling like -7 with the wind chill.
The temperature is then forecast to drop to about -13 C with wind chill overnight.
In a winter storm update, city officials said that crews are “ready to begin salting and plowing operations in anticipation of today’s forecasted snowfall while simultaneously continuing snow removal operations” from last week’s blizzard.
About 55 centimetres of snow fell on the city on Jan. 17, shuttering schools and causing major transit and driving delays.
A week later and the city is still digging out from the snowstorm. Toronto Mayor John Tory declared a “major snow storm condition” following the brunt of the blizzard, which prohibits cars from parking on roads designated as snow routes.
The city announced on Friday that it would increase its efforts to clear the roads, with a focus on getting snow off of minor roads now that several of Toronto’s major arterial highways have been plowed.
Crews had cleared just over 17,300 tonnes of snow from Toronto roads as of Sunday.
Last week, the city warned that snow removal will take several more days; however, it is unclear how this will be affected by additional snowfall.
