Major blizzard slamming Greater Toronto Area, with up to 60 cm of snow expected
Greater Toronto Area residents are being urged to limit travel as a major blizzard continues to slam the area, forcing road closures and a delay to in-person learning for students on Monday.

By the end of the day, the city and surrounding areas could get as much as 60 centimetres of snow, according to Environment Canada.

For several hours this morning, Environment Canada upgraded its winter storm warning to a blizzard warning, before snowfall started to taper off around noon and the warning was downgraded.

The weather agency said the storm could cause serious problems in dense urban areas.

It warned of hazardous conditions with heavy snow and strong winds resulting in "widespread near-zero visibility."

A CBC Toronto reporter out on the ground reported shortly after 6 a.m. that the snow's falling so fast that as soon as work crews clear it, it starts accumulating again.

Gusting winds of up to 60 km/h combined with hourly snowfall of between eight and 10 centimetres during the morning could produce treacherous conditions for drivers and other commuters, Environment Canada cautioned.

We had this kind of “blizzard” almost every day in the winter in Russia. Nobody even tried to clean the roads. And with temperatures much power. I liked those huge snow pile as a kid, digging fortresses and playing war games.

I was out shoveling earlier in a nearby city and there were lots of ambulance sirens going off during the 45 minutes or so I was shoveling.

I think a lot of people are dying today with heart attacks and strokes cause its the first big snowfall since people got vaccinated and people are croaking while shoveling.

They need to tax us more so that this will stop. If we also listen to what the news said today, ‘limit driving and red meat consumption’ we won’t have to deal with this again. Do your part

Toronto doesnt usually get as much snow as everywhere surrounding it. It's always been sheltered on the north side of Lake Otario.
Buffalo, Niagara, Barrie or Hamilton etc. could get a foot of snow, and Turonto would only get an inch.
There are also a lot of immigrants in Toronto who are not used to driving in the snow and they dont have snow tires.
There are always tons of accidents even with a light dusting.
I'm an hour outside of Toronto and we easily got 60cm, and every place close to the great lakes was supposed to get more. So it might have been closer to a metre or more for Toronto.
1 metre is approximately 3 feet.

Yeah I bet you're right.
And because of stuck cars and the snowaccumulation, ambulances can't get to people in time.
