“Snowfall rates of 2 to 4 centimetres per hour are possible during the heaviest snow, and if this occurs, near zero visibility in the heavy snow may be a significant issue to deal with,” the Environment Canada said in its warning.
The GTA and surrounding areas were blanketed with an upwards of 30cm of snow on Friday February 8th, 2013. 19cm of snow had fallen by 1:30 p.m. making it the heaviest snowfall Toronto has seen since early 2008.
The storm created a long list of delays and cancellations, one caught here by our Captain (Khalid Mokhtarzada) while riding his bike in the blistery and hazy conditions along Spadina. He was able to catch this TTC Bus, struggling to get traction on the corner of King & Spadina.
