Here we snow again: Snowfall record broken at Pearson

Last Updated Feb 27, 2019 at 7:28 pm EDT

Well, here we snow again.

The snowfall record for Feb. 27 at Pearson Airport was broken Wednesday, with 18 centimetres accumulating throughout the day. The previous record was set in 2013 with 12.4 centimetres of snow.

Much of the GTA, including Toronto, has been under a snowfall warning with the region seeing “significant snowfall” throughout the day.

The snowfall warning includes the City of Toronto, Mississauga, Hamilton, St. Catharines, Vaughan and surrounding areas.

A special weather statement is also in effect for areas to the north and east of the GTA, including Newmarket, Georgina, Pickering and Oshawa.

The snow hit the Golden Horseshoe early in the morning and continued throughout the day before ending around 7 p.m.

The heaviest snow fell during the afternoon hours leading to a difficult and messy commute home.

Pearson Airport is reminding passengers to check their flight status before heading out, as weather-related delays and cancellations are possible.

Even though an early spring was predicted, this isn’t the last of the winter weather for the season — more flurries are expected this weekend.
