GTA residents wake up to fresh snow on Christmas Day

Somewhat heavier snow is likely in some areas, especially in the Greater Toronto Area where a snowfall warning is in effect. "Snow at times heavy will continue this evening, enhanced by heavy snow bands off of Lake Ontario".

Prince Edward Island RCMP asked drivers to stay off the roads as conditions deteriorated on Monday afternoon, and Marine Atlantic has cancelled ferry crossings until Wednesday.

"More snow is on the way for this evening and overnight".

"The weather outside is frightful". There was a 40 percent chance of flurries during Christmas day.

Active weather is expected to continue throughout the week in Toronto as temperatures are expected to drop.

Christmas night the low was expected to be -16 with a wind chill of -26.

It's a handsome white Christmas, but it's becoming blustery with brisk winds and local blowing snow developing, states the weather statement. "Travelers should adjust their driving in the presence of reduced visibility in blowing snow". It is estimated that between 5 and 10 cm will fall Sunday, with another 2 to 4 cm expected on Monday.
