Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement for the City of Toronto.
A special weather statement for Toronto and most of southern Ontario remains in effect, with a mix of rain and snow set to descend on the region.
Freezing rain is possible northwest of Toronto on Thursday night.
“Of course, it’s all temperature-dependent,” CityNews weather specialist Frank Ferragine said.
Colder regions will see freezing rain and possibly snow, while warmer areas will see rain.
“Here in Toronto, expect some of that mixing [weather] right around the evening commute,” Ferragine said.
A low pressure system over Kansas is set to bring snow mixed with rain to most of southern Ontario by mid-day Thursday. There is a risk of freezing rain, which could make travel hazardous, before the precipitation changes over to rain by night fall.
Periods of rain will continue throughout most of Friday with between 15 to 25 millimetres falling before it tapers off that night.
