Your commute could be a nasty one tomorrow morning, according to Environment Canada.

A snow squall watch is in effect for Newmarket and northern York and Durham regions, developing overnight and continuing into Wednesday.

Visibility may be suddenly reduced at times in heavy snow, creating hazardous travel conditions, according to the weather service.

Total snowfall amounts near 15 cm are possible by Wednesday evening, with northwest winds gusting to 50 km/h expected to produce the blowing snow conditions.

The snow squalls are expected to gradually weaken tomorrow night.
