Children wanting to help clean up massive amounts of snow?
Okay…bring on the 50cms of snow!
Environment Canada said southern Ontario is on the brink of a “snow-mageddon” — a term used by the government agency to describe what’s coming the region’s way.
Two more significant winter storms are about to hit the region, one on Friday and another on Sunday.
Some areas may receive a combined total of about 50 centimetres of snow.
Dave Phillips, a senior climatologist with Environment Canada, told 680News that in this case the term “snow-mageddon” is no exaggeration, and added that back-to-back-to-back snow storms can wreak havoc.
“It’s often the three events in a row that could bring you to your knees — no places to put the snow, you’re running out of adrenaline and it becomes a bigger event,” Phillips said.
On top of Monday’s accumulation, the GTA could receive 15 to 20 centimetres on Friday, with another blast expected on Sunday.
But, the good news is that Torontonians will finally get a white Christmas.
