Yesterday, Toronto experienced record-breaking snowfall, ushering in wintery weather conditions.
Prior to Monday, the largest recorded snowfall on Nov. 11 in Toronto dated back to 1983 with three centimetres of snow. Commuters across the city had their journeys impacted by the unexpected snow, with TTC delays and poor driving conditions reported.
The Ontario Provincial Police reported more than 200 collisions in the western region of the province (with a boundary of Windsor to the edge of the GTA and north to Georgian Bay) before rush hour.

Overnight, temperatures across southern Ontario shattered low-temperature records, says the Weather Network. This morning, City of Toronto crews began cleaning up streets, salting roads and sidewalks. Beck Taxi warned users to expect longer wait times due to higher volumes and road conditions. Pearson Airport experienced cancellations and delays due to the weather.
“Last night, we brought in additional snow clearing crews and continue to have additional crews to ensure the airfield is cleared. Our deicing facility is busy this morning, as there was about 5 centimetres of snow accumulated overnight,” an airport spokesperson told CP24.
This isn’t the end of the wintery weather for the week. More snow is expected Thursday, according to the Weather Network, with scattered flurries and temperatures dipping below zero.
