While the temperatures in the city have sure dropped over the past week, Toronto still has yet to see its first significant snowfall of the season.
That all might change really soon, however, as The Weather Network reports that southern Ontario is in for some blustery winter weather over the next few days.
As the final week of November approaches, we’re about to get hit with the coldest temperatures yet, with daytime temperatures barely cracking the freezing mark reaching as low as -8 degrees Celsius, as well as the possibility of lake-effect snow hitting east and southeast of Lake Huron and Georgian Bay.
Some areas could see up to 15 cm of snow as of Saturday morning, impacting locations like Wasaga Beach, Port Elgin, and the Saugeen Shores. Wind patterns could also bring that precipitation southeast towards Toronto.
Luckily, the agency writes another mild pattern of weather will return in early December, likely hanging around into the middle of the month.
While not all of us love the cold, there is something to be said about the first snowfall during the holiday season. Coinciding with the lighting of Toronto’s official Christmas tree tomorrow, return of outdoor skating rinks, and the annual Santa Claus Parade on Sunday, the magical sight of flurries could get even the Grinch himself into the Christmas spirit.
