Snow advisory in effect for Mississauga and Brampton


Published April 18, 2022 at 6:38 pm

Residents of Mississauga and Brampton, particularly motorists, have received a travel advisory due to a spring snowstorm.

Environment and Climate Change Canada warned Monday afternoon (April 18) of “significantly reduced visibilities in heavy snow,” due to an anticipated 4 to 8 cm of the white stuff falling across Peel Region. The precipitation also began as rain, which could exacerbate slippery road conditions.

“The onset of precipitation will likely begin as rain before changing over to snow,” says ECCC, which is the federal climate and weather agency. “Above freezing temperatures and areas in close proximity to the lakeshore may limit snowfall accumulations, especially on surfaces such as roads and sidewalks. Locally higher snowfall accumulations may occur over areas of higher terrain including the Oak Ridges Moraine where temperatures will be slightly cooler.

“Be prepared to adjust your driving with changing road conditions. Take extra care when walking or driving in affected areas. Visibility may be suddenly reduced at times in heavy snow.”

Some snow could also fall in the region on Tuesday. The temperatures are expected to return into the double digits the following day, which would melt away the last throes of winter snow.
