Environment Canada said some parts of the GTA could see brief bursts of up to two centimetres of snow late Sunday night, but more snow is expected to follow Monday afternoon. "It will likely be accompanied by a brief burst of heavier snow with reduced visibilities affecting travel", the national weather agency's advisory read.

While higher concentrations are possible, a snowfall warning, which would require a minimum of 15 centimetres falling in a 12-hour period, is not expected.

On Monday, a general snowfall of five to 10 centimetres is likely as a low pressure area moves across the southern region.

The poor driving, the agency said, will continue through to Barrie and Toronto, which are also under a special weather statement and where heavy snowfall is expected Monday.

Eastern Ontario - including Ottawa - can expect a general 8 to 12 cm of snow on Monday, according to Environment Canada.

Environment Canada issued special weather statements for much of southern Ontario on Sunday as the region experienced a blast of winter weather. "The snow is forecast to begin during the day Monday and taper off Tuesday morning".
