While some people are still recovering from last weekend’s snowstorm, another blast of winter weather is on the way for Mississauga and Brampton.
Last Friday (March 3), up to 30 cm was predicted but 18.6 cm came in the evening and another six cm fell on Saturday, according to the Weather Network.
The storm left a mess of snow and many complaints about windrows left behind by snow plows — the problem could be fixed but it would cost more tax money.
This next dump of snow shouldn’t cause as many issues but it is a bit more than what was initially forecasted earlier this week.
Now, up to 10 cm could fall in Mississauga and five to 10 cm are expected for Brampton tomorrow (March 10), according to the Weather Network.
Environment Canada says the snow is expected to start in the late morning tomorrow (March 10) with about five cm to start in Mississauga and Brampton. More snow may fall in the evening.
It’s also going to be chilly — with temperatures hovering around -2 C.
The snow doesn’t end Friday. There are flurries in the forecast on Sunday and Monday.
Update: At 3:20 p.m. Environment Canada issued a winter weather travel advisory for Friday for Mississauga, Brampton and Halton Region.
With snow with total accumulations of five to 10 cm, visibility may be reduced at times.
“Motorists should expect hazardous winter driving conditions and adjust travel plans accordingly,” Environment Canada warns. “Be prepared to adjust your driving with changing road conditions. If visibility is reduced while driving, turn on your lights and maintain a safe following distance.”
There may be a significant impact on rush hour traffic in urban areas — particularly for the evening commute.
The snow will begin late Friday morning and taper off late Friday evening.
Widespread snow will push across southwestern Ontario and the Golden Horseshoe.
