What's expected for Toronto's third weekend of wintry weather

Jan 22 2020, 10:51 am

It’s past noon on Wednesday, which means it’s basically the weekend.

And if you’re in the midst of making Saturday night plans, you’d be remiss not to note that wintry weather is in the forecast for — yes — the third weekend in a row.

While it’ll be no record-breaking snowfall like last weekend, Saturday and Sunday are showing mixed precipitation and scattered flurries, respectively, according to The Weather Network.

Meteorologists say that there’s still a lot of uncertainty with the system that’s expected to come through.

The precipitation could begin on Friday, with about 1 mm of rain expected to accumulate and less than 1 cm of snow. On Saturday, up to 5 mm of rain accumulation is expected, plus 2 to 4 cm of snow. Sunday calls for less than 1 cm of snow accumulation.

So, it’s not predicted to be much, but it is something — which will only add to the city’s already ridiculously high percentage of snowfall for where we’re at in the season.

The week ahead, from Thursday, will see temperatures levelling out at 1°C across the board, until they jump up to 0°C on Wednesday.

The wind chill will remain tame, too, bouncing between feeling like -4°C and 0°C.

Following the snowy weekend, Monday through to Wednesday show mainly sunny conditions — so make sure you get outside those days to soak up a little vitamin D.
