A major snowstorm moving through the Greater Toronto Area is causing a number of slowdowns on mayor highways and roads Monday morning.
A snowfall warning, which came into effect on Sunday for much of the GTA, has now ended. Environment Canada said some regions may see up to 15 centimetres of snow when the weather system passes.
The snow, which intensified overnight, is expected to lighten up Monday morning as the temperatures rises.
Ontario Provincial Police said over 260 collisions were reported on OPP patrolled roads and highways on Sunday.
In the city of Toronto, plowing on main roads began at 8 p.m. with a second round completed at 1 a.m. Officials said crews will continue to clear major roadways through the morning rush hour.
Manager of Road Operations for the city of Toronto, Hector Moreno, advised drivers to leave more time to get to their destination and give plenty of room for snow plows who are on the roads clearing a path.
Meanwhile, Toronto Pearson International Airport is experiencing a number of delays for arrival and departure flights.
The Greater Toronto Airports Authority said crews have been working all night to prepare for flights on Monday.
As of 5:30 a.m., 116 flights have been cancelled.
Travelers are being reminded to check your flights status before arriving at the airport.
