Ontario Can't Decide What Season It Is With Snow, Rain & Warm Weather Expected This Week
We're getting a little bit of everything!
Ontario is in for a crazy and unpredictable week according to weather specialists. The forecast is hitting the province with a little bit of everything, including snow, rain, freezing rain, and also, some warmer than usual temperatures. It seems like Ontario weather just can't decide how it's feeling.
It's currently 8 C in Toronto and as snow continues to melt, Torontonians are hit with those early spring vibes.
The southern parts of Ontario are forecasted to receive between 5 and 15 millimetres of rain on Monday, according to The Weather Network.
However, snow is expected in Toronto on Tuesday, quickly switching the season from spring to winter.
After Tuesday, we can expect some more seasonal cold temperatures as they dip back below freezing.
Wednesday will feel like -10 C in Toronto, while today, December 9, feels like 7 C. That's a 17-degree difference in just a few days.
Meanwhile, Northern Ontario has colder temperatures and a freezing rain warning issued by Environment Canada.
Northeastern Ontario will be getting moderate-to-heavy snow today according to The Weather Network.
Northern regions of the province can expect anywhere from 5 to 20 centimetres of snow throughout Monday.
It seems that Mother Nature just can't decide exactly what she wants the weather to be like throughout Ontario this week.
So bring out your umbrella, your parka, your rain boots, and an extra pair of socks or two, because this weather is all over the place.
It's also supposed to rain again on Saturday in Toronto, so expect the snow to keep falling and melting. It looks like it's going to be a soggy week.
The North and South end of the province seem to be polar opposites throughout the week.
The Weather Network is also predicting snow squalls on Tuesday and Wednesday to travel from Northern to Southern Ontario.
This alternation of freezing rain and snow will likely be a trend for the rest of the winter, according to a three-month winter forecast.
So get ready for more fluctuations like this; winter is going to be brutal this year.
