Slippery commute expected Monday morning for GTA
GTA residents may be in for a slippery commute Monday morning as a storm coming in from the U.S. could bring up to 15 mm of rain.
Environment Canada meteorologist Ria Alsen said the rain, which is expected to begin Sunday night, will fall until Monday afternoon.
A warm front coming in with the Colorado storm will raise temperatures in Toronto to 4 C by early morning.
This abnormally high morning temperature, coupled with rain, will melt the snow and likely give commuters a slippery drive, Alsen said.
“There’s going to be a lot of water on the roads,” she said.
Road conditions for the evening commute could be icy, as temperatures are expected to drop to -1 C by late afternoon, and any puddles on the ground could freeze, she added.
Newmarket, Vaughan and parts of eastern Ontario could receive freezing rain. Parts of southwestern Ontario face a risk of scattered thunderstorms.
Tuesday’s forecast for Toronto is sunny with a high of 1 C.
