Toronto Will Likely Have A White Christmas This Year

Winter is typically not a season that Canadians look forward to. In recent years, winters have been rather cold and bleak, and according to the Farmers' Almanac, that won't change this year.

They've predicted that the upcoming Canadian winter will be absolutely brutal (with the exception of British Columbia), so that's not good. It also doesn't help that their forecasts are accurate 80 to 85% of the time; at least, according to Peter Geiger, the editor of the Farmers' Almanac.

But if there's one good thing to come out of these rather discouraging predictions, it's that there's a good chance Toronto could see a White Christmas this year.

According to Accuweather, the weather conditions on December 24 will be considerably cloudy with some snow. During the day, 3 hours of precipitation is expected to yield up to 1.4 cm of snow, and during the night, around 5.5 hours of precipitation is expected to yield up to 5.5 cm of snow:

More snowfall is also predicted for December 25, with 4 hours of precipitation expected to yield up to 4.2 cm of snow during the day, and 3 hours of precipitation expected to yield up to 2.4 cm of snow during the night:

Of course, forecasts are still predictions, and the weather is never set in stone. But we can take some comfort in the fact that Accuweather does significant research to form their forecasts. Their team looks at everything from climate models and complex weather systems to all the interactions between ocean, land and atmosphere.
