We still have 10 days until the first official day of winter, but much of the country is dealing with frigid arctic air and expected heavy snowfalls. Much of southern Ontario should expect significant snow Sunday and into Monday and officials are reminding pedestrians and drivers to be aware of rapidly changing travel conditions. Toronto has a fleet of 200 salt trucks, 600 snow plows and 300 sidewalk plows. Toronto’s roads operation manager Hector Moreno is advising drivers to avoid main routes during the clean up Monday and encourages people to take public transit whenever possible. The prairies and western Canada remain frozen with sub-zero temperatures. Weather experts say parts of Nova Scotia could see up to 30 centimetres of snowfall by tonight. Alberta continues to break records for its electricity demands during the cold snap. A blanket of snow will cover the Great Lakes and the Northeast ahead of an expected dip into Arctic-cold temperatures.To the south, the wintry weather mostly moved out of the Plains overnight, pushing further into Wisconsin, Illinois and Indiana.The National Weather Service said Chicago will see an additional 3 to 5 inches Sunday. Detroit could see the heaviest amount of snow Sunday, about 8 inches. For the latest information on Toronto’s first snowfall, tune in to Jane Brown on Zoomer Radio (AM740/96.7FM downtown Toronto) and to Andy Johnson on The New Classical FM (96.3 FM Toronto, 103.1 FM Cobourg, and 102.0 FM in Collingwood.)
