Toronto to be hit with mild temperatures following 'icy mix'

Jan 8 2019, 11:01 pm

After a freezing rain warning was issued for Toronto on Monday, waking up to mild temperatures and clear skies was a welcomed surprise Tuesday.

This morning, there’s a “much milder feel” across southern Ontario as temperatures rise well above the freezing mark, according to The Weather Network.

These mild temperatures will hold steady in the mid to single digits for most of the day in Toronto before tapering off into rain showers and snow later this evening.

“Light rain pushes in across southwestern Ontario by the late morning hours, then into the Greater Toronto Area and up to southern Georgian Bay by the early afternoon,” says Weather Network meteorologist Nadine Hinds-Powell.

“A rain/snow mix is more likely over the higher terrain north and west of Toronto.”

By tonight, the rain will shift to snow showers as cooler air continues to filter in behind the low and Hinds-Powell says most of the Golden Horseshoe will see a dusting of up to 2 cm of snow.

Despite having a few brushes with cold and snow in Toronto so far this winter, The Weather Network says we will see some of the coldest weather we’ve had so far this winter on Thursday and Friday.

Environment Canada is forecasting Toronto’s mild temperatures are going to drop down to -13ºC by Thursday evening.

But hey, at least it’s not as cold as what we saw at this same time last year
