Winter forecast: Toronto to be hit with frequent snow storms this year

Oct 18 2017, 2:34 pm

While temperatures are expected to reach 21°C in Toronto today, this fall warmth will soon be a thing of our distant past.

AccuWeather just released their winter forecast for Ontario, and it’s not looking great.

The weather website is forecasting a “snow-filled winter” with frequent snow storms, thanks to the development of La Niña, according to AccuWeather Canadian Weather Expert Brett Anderson.


Eastern Canada is expected to have a few big snowstorms throughout the winter.

“There are opportunities for several significant snow events from Windsor through Toronto and up into Ottawa and Montreal this winter, especially in January and February,” Anderson said.

But it’s not just Toronto feeling the effects of La Niña. Anderson said that the abnormally warm waters in the Great Lakes will also be the catalyst to significant lake-effect snow for cities like Barrie and London, Ontario.

So basically, expect lots of snow in Ontario.
