Weather Warning Predicts A Snowy, Freezing Weekend in Toronto

Wrap warm up this weekend!

If you thought that it would only get snowier and colder throughout January, you were correct! The Weather Network has reported that Ontario is about to be hit with 10-20cm of snow over this weekend alone!

Temperatures are likely to drop significantly below what we would usually expect for this time of year and this could potentially impact both roads and air travel.

According to the government weather forecast, the snow will begin late on Saturday morning and could continue into Monday night.

You may remember last year’s blizzard, when, according to Toronto Weather Stats, just over 63cm of snow fell in January. This caused plenty of disruption across the city, with cars buried in snow and some schools closed. We have already seen around 9cm of snowfall this January.
