WRAPAROUND SNOW INTO SUNDAY
Though the system will have largely departed the province overnight, some wraparound snow will be possible for much of the south, particularly the southwest, though there will be little in the way of accumulations.
From the system itself, central Ontario will see up to 25 cm of snow through Sunday, while accumulations of 10-20 cm are expected in eastern areas including Ottawa. Totals across the GTA are expected to remain on the light end, with amounts in the 2-5 cm range through Sunday.
At this time, the possibility of tree damage and power outages is less likely than previously thought.
FAIR WEATHER RETURNS NEXT WEEK; MILDER AIR TO START
Dry conditions are expected to return for early and the middle of next week. Overall, there will be a mild pattern, but temperatures will trend closer to seasonal for Tuesday through Thursday, with daytime highs near or just above the freezing mark.
"We are keeping our eye on a couple of systems that could impact our region late next week and weekend, but it is too early to have confidence in the tracks of these systems and how they will impact the Golden Horseshoe," says Weather Network meteorologist Dr. Doug Gillham, adding there are indications of a return to more typical winter temperatures beyond Feb. 5, but confidence is low as to whether there will be an extended period of cold weather.
