All weather advisories have been called off, but drivers are still dealing with the aftermath of this weekend’s winter wallop.
Environment Canada has ended a snowfall warning after roughly 20 centimetres blanketed most parts of the region Sunday.
Though the heavy squalls are over, we could see a few more light flurries Monday morning as a low-pressure system from Colorado moves away from the Great Lakes.
Since the snow is on the heavier side, you’ll want to take your time shoveling. Environment Canada Meteorologist Ryan Rozinskis doesn’t believe blowing snow will be a major issue on Monday.
“We’re looking at winds from the west gusting to about 60 kilometres an hour, not until later in the morning, and by then the snow will have compacted a little bit, so blowing snow likely not as much of a concern as it would be in snow squalls,” said Rozinskis.
That doesn’t mean drivers should let their guard down. Most streets are snow-covered and slippery, so motorists should take it slow.
“There’s still a lot of snow that fell overnight and with that, the road crews will need time to clear all the roads, especially side roads, so exercise caution through the morning,” said Rozinskis.
Once this system completely clears out later this morning, Rozinskis notes we’ll enjoy a bit of a break before another system could arrive on Thursday.
“That would be the next chance that I foresee to have significant snowfall,” he said.
