Environment Canada cautions Toronto against extreme cold

Published on : Saturday, December 30, 2017

Osnown Friday the icy roads made travelling quite an inconvenience.

 

Environment Canada has issued yet another travel advisory for commuters who might be heading home in the evening.

 

People in transit must be careful since a ‘slow moving and persistent’ band of snow has been crawling over some areas of Greater Toronto that caused about two to four centimeters to pile up every passing hour. It has minimized visibility to 400 metres.

 

This snow band is likely to clear out of the GTA by early this evening as stated by the national weather agency of this region.

 

Meanwhile the Toronto Pearson Airport has mentioned that there might be probable delays and cancellations owing to the winter weather and the passengers have been advised to check the status of their flight on the website of Pearson.

 

As of 4 p.m. over 120 flights had to be cancelled at Pearson including 63 departing and 62 arriving flights.

 

Earlier today, the weather advisory meant ‘difficult driving conditions’ for commuters on the Gardiner Expressway as explained by Mitch Meredith who is a meteorologist associated with Environment Canada. He added that any snow on the ground at such extreme temperatures would turn into ice.

 

And therefore he recommended commuters to exercise caution and slow down particularly while passing through the Gardiner Expressway.

 

Drivers have been cautioned to take extra time to reach their destinations.

 

Friday night would feel a bit warmer than yesterday with a high of -12 degree Celsius.
