As Predicted In October, Toronto Will Be Hit With Significant Snowfall This Week

The Farmers Almanac predicted heavy snow for December 8 and on.

The Canadian Farmers' Almanac has the tendency to be off on its predictions, but it seems like it may have been onto something with a prediction it made earlier this year.

This past October, the Almanac released its weather predictions for this year's winter and outlined that heavy snowfall could hit Toronto and other Canadian cities between December 8 to 11. Such prediction may bear some degree of accuracy, as recent reports indicate that Toronto and the GTA can expect a quite a bit of snow tonight and in the following days.

According to CP24, Environment Canada has issued a snow squall watch for parts of the GTA. Snow squalls are estimated to arrive later this Thursday night, as a cold front moves northwest winds over Lake Huron and the Georgian Bay. This lake-effect snow could bring in from 6 to 15 cm of snow within a 12-hour span in some areas, and forecasts show that the snowfall could continue into Friday.

Stay safe out there!
