A happy baby, no matter the weather

November 24, 2010 — Get those winter coats back out of storage! A cold front has sent temperatures back into the single digits, with lows below the freezing mark.

What a difference a day makes.

Early Tuesday morning, people in southern Ontario were enjoying temperatures in the mid to upper teens. Port Weller hit a record-breaking 17.8°C, while Toronto's Pearson Airport climbed to 16.5°C.

However, temperatures quickly declined throughout the day.

“We had a cold front pass through and that cooled things down significantly,” says Dayna Vettese, a meteorologist at The Weather Network. “It was also very windy.”

Conditions cooled down so dramatically throughout the day on Tuesday that some communities saw snow flurries.

Today, the skies will be mainly clear across the region, but don't let the sunshine fool you. The city of Toronto is only looking at a daytime high of about 3°C and a low of -2°C.

Pearson International Airport is yet to record its' first cm of snow at this year, but that could change this week.

“We have a system making its way to the province, and it could bring a rain-snow mix to parts of southern Ontario,” says Vettese. “Toronto itself could see a cm or two on Friday.”
