While the snow has diminished after yesterday’s storm, the Weather Network is warning that strengthening winds on Thursday, Feb. 27, are a “major concern with blowing snow and dangerous squalls.”
“Although most schools remained open across southern Ontario on Thursday, overnight snow and strengthening winds will still make for slower commute times throughout the day,” The Weather Network said on its website.
In addition to winds gusting between 40 and 50 km an hour on Thursday, Environment Canada is warning the wind chill will be minus 13 C during the day and near minus 16 C overnight Thursday.
Yesterday’s storm dumped 11 cm of snow on Brampton and Mississauga, according to meteorologists.
The risk of snow squalls will continue on Friday, according to Environment Canada, with 5 to 10 cm of snow expected during the day. The wind chill Friday afternoon will be minus 10 C.
Things will get warmer next week with Environment Canada forecasting temperatures of 7 C on Tuesday and Wednesday.
