Bundle up, it's going to get cold.
This year is coming in cold, with well-below-normal temperatures predicted in Central Canada and a "brutally cold" Christmas and Boxing day across Ontario.
Throughout December, the forecast predicts winds, flurries, snow and cold, so you'll have to bundle up to do your Christmas shopping.
The Farmers' Almanac has called the season a "frosty flip-flop winter" with "notable polar coaster swings in temperatures."
Snow is expected to fall at an average amount across the country, however, the flip-flop weather from month to month may bring in a little extra.
January is set to be snowy, stormy and wet throughout the month, with milder than normal temperatures at the start of the month that will fade into colder temperatures towards the end.
February will bring some calm with fewer storms, but the forecast predicts parts of Ontario and Quebec will be hit with a "winter whopper" near the end of the month. Temperatures are also expected to be "very cold."
As March comes along, don't expect any spring weather; close to the vernal equinox, colder than seasonal temperatures will be rolling in.
