Toronto to expect "messy" weather for the first weekend of February

Jan 30 2020, 1:01 pm

While Toronto’s extreme weather alert was lifted earlier on Thursday, the city’s wet winter pattern will continue into the first weekend of February.

According to a report by the Weather Network, an active pattern will be bringing “some wet and messy precipitation” for the start of February, although there is still “no consistent cold weather in sight.”

The weather agency is forecasting highs above the freezing mark, with flurries expected both on Saturday and Sunday.

This will also be the fourth weekend in a row where a system has moved into the region, bringing rain, snow or an icy mix, stated the Weather Network.

“This will not be a major storm this weekend, however, but a weak clipper will track across the region late in the day with periods of wet snow,” said Weather Network meteorologist Dr. Doug Gillham.

Both days will accumulate under 2 cm, according to the forecast.

As for the start of next week, a milder pattern will kick off Monday, with a high of 5°C.

But the messy weather will return by Tuesday, when mixed precipitation is in the forecast.

“A period of messy weather is expected for the middle of next week as a cold front slowly sinks south across our region,” said Gillham.

So while it is not cold cold, it will be rainy and snowy…

It’s ok… only two more months of winter… we hope.
