A winter weather travel advisory has ended for Toronto after the city experienced a brief period of poor visibility due to flurries.

The advisory issued by Environment Canada was lifted before 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday.

Earlier, the federal weather agency had said travel could be hazardous due to sudden changes in weather and there might be a "significant" impact on the afternoon commute. Between two to four centimetres of snow was forecast.

The brief snowfall was part of a sharp cold front moving south through the region, the federal agency said.
