Travellers looking to get away for the March Break via Pearson Airport in Mississauga tomorrow (March 10) are being put on notice that snow in addition to the usual peak time busyness might cause a few delays.

“We’re gearing up to welcome March Break travellers, but heads up if you’re flying out tomorrow as snow is in the forecast,” Pearson officials said on Twitter.

To help make things easier, airport officials urge travellers to check in online for their flights, confirm status of their flights ahead of time with the airline and arrive at the airport early for flights.

Though only 10 centimetres or so of snow is expected throughout the day and evening on Friday, any wintry weather has the potential to cause some flight delays.

Environment Canada says the snow is expected to start in the late morning on Friday with about five centimetres early on in Mississauga and Brampton. More snow may fall in the evening.

It’s also going to be a little chilly, with temperatures hovering around -2 C.

Beyond tomorrow, flurries are in the forecast for Sunday and Monday.
