Canada Winter Weather, Winter weather conditions in parts of Canada could cause major delays for thousands travelling to their holiday destination.

With Christmas just a few days away, Toronto Pearson International Airport is expected to see 105,000 travellers come through today alone on what is being called its busiest travel day of the year.

An estimated two million people will pass through Pearson over the holiday season.

Those travelling are asked to check their flight status before heading to the airport.

Forecasters are predicting some nasty weather for parts of Ontario Friday as a low pressure system from the U.S. tracks its way north.

Environment Canada has issued a warning for the Ottawa region saying residents should brace for up to 20 centimetres of snow today and can expect low visibility due to blowing snow.

Weather warnings are also in effect for Haliburton, Parry Sound – Muskoka, Prescott and Russell and Smiths Falls areas.

And a special weather statement says a cold northwesterly flow off the Great Lakes could bring up to 10 centimetres of snow tonight to areas near Lake Huron and the Georgian Bay.

Motorists are being advised to adjust travel plans accordingly as driving conditions are expected to be hazardous in many regions.

Meanwhile, Environment Canada also has winter storm warnings out for Sudbury, Timmins and North Bay, predicting snow, blowing snow and chilly temperatures.
