Toronto, it looks like it’s officially time to take out your toques and winter jackets, as we’re going to get our first real taste of fall weather this week.
Heading into the week, The Weather Network is forecasting Ontario is going to be hit with rain, gusty winds and even wet snow in parts of the province.
Here in Toronto, we’re going to start the week off on a dreary note, as periods of rain and gusts of wind of up to 60 km/h are expected on Monday.
Monday will be the warmest day of the week, with a high of 14°C, which will be followed by a gradual fall in temperature down to 12°C on Tuesday and then to 10°C on Wednesday.
However, the warm-ish temperatures will be short lived as the mercury is forecasted to dip below zero to -1°C on Wednesday evening, according to Environment Canada.
Despite temperatures forecasted to dip below freezing on Wednesday, Weather Network meteorologist Dr. Doug Gillham says, “most of the GTA will not see any snow, but a coating of wet snow is possible in a few spots across the higher terrain south of Georgian Bay.”
Heading into the weekend, the sunshine will return on Thursday and linger on Friday, with a high of 12°C forecasted.
“Some sunshine is expected for Friday with a brisk southwest wind helping to boost temperatures into the lower teens and possibly mid-teens,” Gillham says.
