The Toronto area is expected to receive 15 to 20 centimetres. The storm is expected to hang around until Friday night.
This storm is unusual . . . because storms often "hit and run," but "this storm is slow moving," said David Phillips, senior climatologist with Environment Canada.
Making conditions worse, winds gusting up to 60 km/h will produce hazardous driving conditions tomorrow evening.
The blowing snow will make visibility almost nil.
The cold won’t let up either.
The long-range forecast is for frigid temperatures right through Christmas, with temperatures dropping to near —13C on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.
