More snow coming next week in Mississauga and Brampton

Did someone say round-two?

If Friday’s blizzard wasn’t enough with the treacherous travelling conditions, winds moving up to 50 km/h and the agonizing shoveling of the aftermath the next day— a milder accumulation of snow is expected for Monday (Mar. 6)

One of the worst blasts of winter hit Mississauga, Brampton, Hamilton and other surrounding areas of southern Ontario late last night (Mar. 3) causing low visibility and several hours of delay for commuters.

According to The City of Mississauga’s website, the significant weather advisory ended this morning and the region was reported to have received up to 27 cm of snow.

Clean-up crews were dispatched to clear priority routes, secondary routes, sidewalks, bus stops and pedestrian crossings.

The Weather Networks says it will be mainly sunny today (Mar. 4) but temperatures will move from 2 C to mins -1 C tonight.

It has been recommended to stay indoors, however anyone planning to be out on the road is urged by police to reduce their speed and drive with caution.

Sunday is hours away and it looks like sunshine will be lingering a bit longer throughout the day with a high of 7 C. It might be a good idea to run those errands or go out for some fresh air.

Environment Canada has forecasted a rather messy Monday (Mar. 6) as it will be mostly cloudy with flurries mixed with rain and approximately 5-10 cm of snow.

Expect Tuesday to bring similar cloudy weather as Monday with less than 1 cm of snow, and low of minus -9 C.

The overcast and gloomy feeling will come to an end mid-week, because Wednesday, Thursday and Friday calls for plenty of sun! Although temperatures will be averaging out to zero degrees Celsius each day and wind speeds above 30 km/h, — this is a much better outcome than any blizzard.

It’s safe to say that once Wednesday is on the horizon, the worst is over and we can be hopeful that Spring showers will bring May flowers.
