The deep freeze is about to end in Toronto but snow and freezing rain are on the way.

Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement as snow will begin falling Tuesday evening followed by freezing rain as the temperature begins to rise due to a warm front moving in.

Officials say Toronto will likely see between two and five centimetres of snow. The freezing rain will last several hours before changing over to rain on Wednesday.
