A Major Snowstorm Is Predicted To Hit Toronto On December 8

The Canadian Farmers' Almanac is a yearly calendar that lists important dates and stats pertaining to things like changing weather conditions and astronomical data in Canada. This year, it's made a couple of predictions that some of us may not be too pleased to hear:

  • Cold weather will start to appear in October and will remain for the rest of the winter season
  • There will be much more snow this year than last year
  • A massive snow storm will hit Toronto and other Canadian cities between December 8 to 11
  • Little pockets of warmth could appear on a few days, including New Year's Day

These predictions are quite a contrast from last year, where the winter in Canada was much milder thanks to the El Nino weather pattern. This year is a non-El Nino year, and according to the almanac's editor, it has always been 80-85% accurate on non-El Nino years.
