Although much of southern Ontario has enjoyed bouts of unseasonable warmth, northern cities are already set to get a taste of winter with snow in Ontario this week. Temperatures in several northern Ontario cities are expected to dip below 0 C in the first week of October. Wet snow and frost are also in the forecast for certain areas.
According to The Weather Network, the following cities all stand the risk of winter-like weather this week.
Canada's capital is expected to drop to 0 C on Friday with 5 mm of showers, which could turn into wet snow, on Sunday of this week. On the bright side of things, the city will also be mainly sunny on Saturday with daytime highs floating in the lower teens.
It is going to be chilly in North Bay on Friday with nighttime temperatures expected to drop as low as -4 C. The city will also receive 1-3 mm of showers, which could potentially lead to some light snow in the area.
Residents of Timmins will be feeling those winter vibes this Friday with daytime highs floating as low as 10 C and night temperatures sitting in the chilling -5 C area. Thankfully, things are going to get better throughout the following week, with temperatures seeing a steady rise.
It's going to be mostly sunny in Sudbury this weekend, but residents will likely still be bundling up in their winter gear. Nighttime temperatures are expected to drop as low -4 C on Friday with 5 mm of showers due on Saturday.
Nipissing is going to stay relatively warm this week with daytime highs of 17 C. However, Friday evening will see a steep dropoff from daytime temperatures going from 9 C to -3 C in a matter of hours.
