November 3, 2010 — The month of November is off to a chilly start in southern Ontario. Single-digit temperatures are forecast throughout much of the week.

Temperatures have taken a dip in many parts of the province. On Monday, Toronto only reached a daytime high of 7°C. On Tuesday and Wednesday morning, the city was sitting in the minus single-digits, and windchills were making it feel even colder than that.

“It's starting to look and feel a little more like winter,” says Michelle Cassar, a meteorologist at The Weather Network. “Temperatures will be struggling to make it into the double digits for the rest of this week.”

This drop in temperatures comes as no surprise to southern Ontario residents who braced for a cold and even snowy day for trick or treating on Sunday. The day time high hit 6°C, a big drop from the 14°C on Saturday.

There is a risk of some active weather in parts of Ontario today.

“A cold front descending from the north will bring showers late day,” says Cassar. “Temperatures will be approaching the freezing mark so snow flurries are also possible.”
