An Arctic cold front is expected to sweep through southern Ontario on Monday and reach the GTA late in the afternoon, bringing with it showers and flurries, Environment Canada says in a special weather statement.

“We have a special weather statement that pretty much blankets the province,” CityNews weather specialist Frank Ferragine said. “It talks about the possibility of seeing some snow push its way down to York Region.”

Snow squall watches are in effect for areas southeast of Lake Huron and Georgian Bay, Environment Canada said.

Ferragine said the winds will change from a southeasterly direction to a northwesterly direction later Monday.

“That means through the afternoon we’ll go from a day time high of 7 C” and feel the temperature drop quickly, he said.

“It’s going to be a real cold commute home this evening,” he said.

There’s a possibility of snow in Barrie all the way down to Newmarket on Tuesday with wet snows in Toronto.
