Weather Advisory is in Effect for Halton
Cold weather is the worst.
(It is — don’t pretend you disagree because you love “skiing” and “sweaters” and “boots,” OK?!)
A winter weather travel advisory has been issued by Environment Canada early Monday for Oakville, Burlington, Milton, Halton Hills, Mississauga, Brampton, and Caledon.
“Snow possibly mixed with some freezing drizzle is expected to develop this morning. Snowfall amounts will be limited to a few centimetres at most, and any freezing drizzle is expected to be light,” reads the statement.
Dense fog patches “reducing visibility are likely” in some areas, too.
Although precipitation amounts will not be overly significant, locally slippery road conditions are anticipated this morning.
Drivers are advised to be extra careful.
“Temperatures are expected to rise above the freezing mark later this morning or early afternoon,” reads the statement.
Monday’s predicted high is 2 C.
Stay warm out there!
UPDATE: As of 9 a.m, the snow had changed to freezing drizzle in many areas from western Toronto to the Kitchener area, with freezing drizzle or some light freezing rain expected to reach Toronto shortly.
This may produce icy conditions on untreated roads, says Environment Canada.
Temperatures are expected to rise above zero around the noon hour in most places with a few rain showers expected this afternoon. This will bring an end to the threat for local icy conditions.
