The province skipped fall and went right to winter.
The Weather Network had forecasted earlier this week that parts of the province, especially those south of the Georgian Bay, would receive their first round of wet snow in the early hours of Friday morning.
The prediction appears to have come true for areas like Muskoka and Port Sydney (goodbye, late summer vibes).

Algonquin Provincial Park took to Twitter to warn residents who are planning a camping trip this weekend to come prepared.

The wintry weather is expected to continue into early next week ahead of a mid-week warm-up that will have things feeling more like fall again.
According to the Weather Network, areas south of Georgian Bay are even expected to see some more snow again on Saturday.
"The flurries this morning were indeed an abrupt contrast to the September-like weather that has dominated the month of October until today," Dr. Doug Gillham, a meteorologist at The Weather Network stated. "While this morning felt like a bit of a shock, temperatures were actually right at normal for late October."
