"Intense snow squalls have developed off of Georgian Bay and Lake Huron," said Weather Network meteorologist Monica Vaswani. "These squalls are expected to push southward towards the GTA Sunday overnight into Monday morning." 

"These squalls will likely weaken through the overnight as they push southward." 

There is a chance for scattered flurries to continue in northern sections of the GTA for the Monday morning rush. 

Environment Canada issued a snow squall watch for the region, including Barrie, Midland and Orillia. 

Residents are advised to monitor future forecasts as warnings may be expanded.
