article imageSnowstorm blows over Toronto, more snow expected Friday Special

By Andrew Moran     Jan 12, 2011 in Environment
Toronto - As much as 10 centimetres (4 inches) blanketed the Greater Toronto Area, while other parts of Ontario received as much as 20 centimetres (8 inches). Another snowstorm is expected to blow by Friday.
Toronto residents woke up to a winter wonderland Wednesday, but they also suffered through the torment of an exhaustive and wretched commute to work or school. Along with the numerous delays on the roads and in public transportation, it was sure a messy ride.
The city of Toronto plows worked throughout the night to clear the highways, expressways and city streets but they also dumped much of that snow on the sidewalks, which caused endless slush and a difficult walk for the following day.
According to CP24, more than 100 accidents were reported Wednesday morning, including one where a driver was taken to the hospital with serious injuries following an accident with a Toronto Transit Commission bus.
The storm also caused more than 170 flight cancellations at the Pearson International Airport. Porter Airlines has warned of potential delays and cancellations for Boston, Halifax, Newark and Toronto, reports 680 News.
What is next in store for Toronto? The Weather Network is reporting of persisting snow squalls for much of the city. Furthermore, the weather outlet is forecasting a significant blanket of snow by Friday evening and Saturday morning. As much as 10 centimetres could hit Toronto.
Tuesday is also calling for light snow with as much as 5 centimetres (2 inches).
Last weekend, Toronto received about 5 centimetres of snow.
