Currently in Toronto— April 19th, 2022

The weather, currently.

Here we snow again!

A complex disturbance will deliver enough snow in some areas to warrant sending out the snowplow crews again! 5-10 cm is expected across many parts of Southern Ontario tonight, especially in higher elevation areas. There are weather advisories stretching from Sarnia to Owen Sound and east to Picton. However, in general, most of the GTA will only get a couple of cms to brush off the windshield as they begin early Tuesday morning. The wake-up windchill will be near -4°C, under mainly cloudy skies. For those living close to the lakes, it will be rain showers. Another band of moisture will push in by late Tuesday morning–it will be snow mixing with showers as our temperature rises to plus 5 for the afternoon. The wind will also be a part of the story with NW gusts of 30-50km/h.

Tuesday night: mainly clear by dawn and cold with a low of 0°C.

First, meteorologists say it’s important to listen for and follow a tornado watch—a warning to pay attention to the weather in your area—and, later, a tornado warning—used to indicate that a tornado has been spotted and action should be taken to ensure safety soon.

Experts say, however, that you should begin preparing yourself, your home and your loved ones for safety as soon as a tornado watch takes effect.
