Wild Weather In The GTA

Mother’s Day didn’t exactly get off to a warm and fuzzy start in some sections of the GTA Sunday.

Some residents in northern areas of the city, like York Region and Markham, couldn’t believe their eyes when they woke to see a light dusting of snow that had fallen overnight.

This isn’t the last of the frost. Environment Canada has issued a frost warning for most of Southern Ontario, including Toronto. The warning will extend into Sunday night.

This wacky weather kicked off with a gusty Saturday, where winds of up to 100 km/h knocked down trees and downed power lines across the GTA.

The wicked winds even caused chaos on the TTC. The Bloor line was shut down for hours between Islington and Kipling due to fallen debris on the tracks.

And Toronto Hydro says at one point, as many as 10, 000 homes and businesses were without power.
