The leaves haven't completely fallen off the trees yet, but winter made its first appearance across some northern Ontario cities early Saturday morning.
Snow showers were seen floating down in Timmins, Kapuskasing and Chapleau. Not only did flurries tumble from the sky, temperatures hovered around the freezing mark.
Due to the cold weather and added moisture, the conditions were ripe for an early snowflake event.
Meanwhile, “...the arctic high that's settling in over Ontario, combined with the system scooting to the south could bring wet flurries to Kitchener, Waterloo overnight on Saturday,” says one of The Weather Network's resident meteorologists, Dayna Vettese.
While snow showers could be in store for parts of southern Ontario on Sunday morning, the west is currently feeling warm. However, this wasn't always the case. Earlier in September, wet snow blanketed the ground throughout Alberta, leaving a fresh layer of cold flakes. The Yukon also saw an early blast of winter recently.
According to the Fall Outlook, northern Ontario can expect higher precipitation amounts this autumn. Southern Ontario is on track for normal fall conditions.
