Parts of the country are starting to see the first blast of winter this week.
On Tuesday, temperatures cooled significantly and wet snow fell across parts of BC and Alberta. The ground was still too warm for any significant accumulations, but the early arrival of snow caught some residents off guard.
It will be a similar story in southern Manitoba and northwestern Ontario with up to 20 cm of snow possible through Friday.
While southern Ontario will escape the snow, cooler temperatures will have people bundling up for the Thanksgiving long weekend.
"The region will feel a blast of warm air on Thursday as southwesterly winds push temperatures into the low 20s," says Gina Ressler, a meteorologist at The Weather Network.
"So get out and enjoy it, because it may actually be the last time the region sees those warm temperatures this year."
A cold front pushing through on Friday may bring a few showers throughout the day. That will be followed by cool and breezy conditions for much of the weekend.
"By Sunday, daytime highs will barely reach the double digits, making for a chilly end to the holiday weekend," says Ressler.
