It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas, and feel like it, too. The Toronto weather forecast is warning that temperatures are going to plummet as we move further into December. With strong wind gusts and flurries, expect it to be freezing cold with more difficult driving conditions.

According to The Weather Network, another large storm system is expected to hit late on the night of Monday, December 16.

At first, that will bring a potentially chaotic mix of rain, ice, and snow. As the week goes on, however, it's going to get brutally cold.

By the middle of next week, particularly Wednesday and Thursday, the real-feel temperatures are going to be in the negative double digits. It's going to feel like it's around -11 Celsius, according to TWN's weekly forecast.

"Many models keep this system too far to our south to have any impact on our region," says TWN meteorologist Dr. Doug Gillham.

"However, a more northerly track would bring the potential for a significant snow or a messy mix of snow, ice and rain late Monday night and into Tuesday."

That "messy mix" is likely to bring more trouble on the roads, you would think.

Ontario has already been hit terribly hard by poor conditions, which have caused a huge number of crashes so far since the weather began to turn.

Notably, a pile-up on Highway 401 around Brockville on Wednesday, December 11, left one person dead.

Fluctuating between warmer temperatures and winter weather, Ontario weather can't seem to make up its mind.

Some areas in Ontario have even experienced up to 50 centimetres of snowfall this week.

And it seems there's a high chance we'll see a lot more of the white stuff fall and settle next week, with some widespread flurries.

Before we get to that, though, it's expected that this weekend will be very mild by comparison. In fact, Friday and Saturday will feel about 10 degrees warmer than the predicted midweek weather.

Ontario's weather is notable for struggling to make up its mind sometimes, and that's been the case frequently in recent weeks.

It's uncertain just how long this latest winter storm could last. Maybe it's time to start thinking about a white Christmas?
