Toronto weather: Buses cancelled across GTA as region reels from snowstorm

Tuesday night’s snowstorm resulted in cancelled buses for schools in the area Wednesday, but all schools — apart from those in the Hamilton Wentworth School Board — remain open.

The Toronto (both Catholic and public), Peel, York and Halton boards have cancelled school buses on Tuesday. The Durham boards have declared, “transportation in zones 1, 2, and 3 cancelled today due to weather. Schools open.”

And anyone going outside should bundle up — an extreme cold weather alert has been issued for Toronto, with temperatures expected to drop to -14 C on Wednesday night.

But there is relief in sight. Monday is set to be a relatively balmy 9 C and that warm weather should continue into the week.

An #ExtremeColdWeatherAlert has been issued for Toronto today. More info: https://t.co/xIZAGQO8CF
