Toronto may not see a white Christmas, but it could see a very white boxing day.
Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement for the GTA and much of southern Ontario. The agency said early Monday that a low pressure system from the U.S. could bring heavy snowfall starting late on Boxing Day and continuing into Thursday.
“As long as this storm stays on track, it looks like we could get a significant dump from 7 p.m. or 8 p.m. through to about 7 a.m.,” said CP24 meteorologist Bill Coulter.
He said the storm could drop 10-20 centimetres of snow on the region.
Environment Canada said the trajectory of the storm - expected to develop as a low pressure system over Texas Christmas Day - is still uncertain.
People are advised to continue monitoring weather forecasts for more information.
