Weather warnings end for GTA, storm leaves mess on some roads

It looks like Old Man Winter may be overstaying his welcome in Toronto.

CityNews meteorologist Natasha Ramsahai is calling for flurries on Wednesday – the first day of spring – and wind chills of -8 C. On Thursday, the forecast high of -1 C will feel more like -7 C with the wind chill.

Below-seasonal temperatures will continue for the rest of the week, Ramsahai said, but things are looking up somewhat for the weekend: sunshine and seasonal temperatures between 3 C and 5 C are in the forecast for Saturday and Sunday.

Tuesday began with a snowy and slushy morning commute for GTA drivers.

While less than two centimetres of snow fell in parts of the GTA on Monday night, that snow mixed with rain, ice pellets and freezing rain to make a mess of the roads.

Tuesday morning’s mild temperatures melted away most of that snow accumulation, but the temperature fell throughout the day and those cold temperatures will stick around until the weekend.

An Environment Canada freezing rain warning and special weather statement issued for the GTA ended Tuesday morning.

The winter weather caused a few headaches for travellers at Pearson International Airport. About a dozen flights were delayed Tuesday morning and another 40 flights are cancelled. Check your flight status here..

Only a few weather-related delays and cancellations happened at Billy Bishop Toronto Centre Airport.
