The Greater Toronto Area is preparing for its first major snowfall of the season - and conditions this afternoon could make for a messy evening commute.

The nationwide forecaster says Hamilton will probably be the toughest hit, with snowfall between 25 and 30 centimetres anticipated.

"If flying from Pearson today, leave yourself lots of extra time as traffic may be impacted by snow".

We're expecting 12 to 15 cm of snow.

The snow is expected to taper off overnight and more flurries are possible on Tuesday.

On Monday morning, Environment Canada issued a weather warning for the Greater Toronto Area calling for heavy, accumulating snowfall.

Halton could receive up to 25 centimetres of snow throughout the day on Monday due to gusty northeast winds of Lake Ontario.

Air travellers are being advised to check on the status of their flights before heading out the airport.

"The snow is blowing and it is only November 11 so it will be some temporary respite at least for some people who need to come in from the cold tonight".
