A cold front moved into Ontario on Wednesday, bringing a stormy mix to much of the province.
Light snow fell in areas including Barrie, Wasaga Beach, and as far south as Markham, making it look more like the beginning of winter. And temperatures are certainly making it feel like winter too.
“In the past few days, we've seen the pattern change a little bit and there was cold air moving into southern Ontario,” says Elena Grigorenko, a meteorologist here at The Weather Network.
“Thursday night and into the morning hours, temperatures dipped as low as zero degrees and some places even see minus one, minus two,” notes Grigorenko.
Temperatures on Friday remained in the single digits forcing most residents to grab an extra sweater and some winter mitts.
The good news is that by the time the weekend fully sets in, temperatures will begin to climb once again.
“Although a low pressure system could bring some unsettled weather to the region, it will remain mild,” says Michelle Cassar, a meteorologist at The Weather Network. “The low will stall over the area and will be stuck in the warm sector, so we'll remain mild,” says Cassar.
We're calling for a daytime high of 15°C in Toronto on Saturday.
