Don’t let today’s mild temperatures fool you, the winter-like weather we previously experienced could be returning this weekend.

While it’s currently 6°C in Toronto, the mercury going to gradually drop over the coming days, before the snow returns on Sunday.

But ahead of the weekend, Toronto’s in for a wet and windy Wednesday, as The Weather Network is reporting a “potent” Colorado low will make its way through the region, bringing rain, snow, and potentially damaging winds with it.

The low is expected to pass by Thursday.

According to The Weather Network, as we head into the weekend, a winter-like storm is expected to track into southern Ontario, thanks to an “unusually powerful bomb cyclone” that crashed into the west coast this week.

“Late Saturday night and early Sunday, freezing rain, ice pellets and snow will develop across our region and continue into Sunday afternoon,” says Weather Network meteorologist Dr. Doug Gillham.

“North and east of Toronto, most of the precipitation is expected to fall as snow with 5 to 10 cm of accumulation expected.”

The Weather Network says snow totals will remain lower to the west and south of Toronto as the precipitation falls as ice pellets and freezing rain.

“Still, untreated surfaces will become icy and hazardous, but ice accumulation will not be heavy enough to cause problems for trees and powerlines,” Gillham says.

As we head into the first week of December, we will see temperatures hover above 0°C along with the chance of sunshine and scattered flurries throughout the week.

So, enjoy the mild weather while it lasts and prepare yourself for the inevitable cold.
