A winter storm could bring significant amounts of precipitation to the Greater Toronto Area and much of southern Ontario Tuesday, Environment Canada said in a special weather statement issued Sunday.
A low pressure system over west Texas is expected to intensify and then move northeast to pass near southern Ontario late Tuesday, the agency said.
Depending on the temperature, the system could bring a mix of rain and snow to the region beginning overnight and continuing on into Wednesday.
The statement covers an area stretching from Windsor to Cornwall and as far north as Algonquin. Environment Canada said it's not yet clear which areas will see the most downfall.
For Toronto, the temperature is currently forecast to reach a high of 3 C Tuesday and then hover around the 0 C mark on Wednesday.
