Thursday, November 21st 2019, 8:26 pm - A markedly cooler Friday may feature some sneaky snow for the southwest, though nothing like a major snow event.
Aside from a few streamers of lake-effect snow, Ontario will largely see a less unsettled Friday, though with cold temperatures to lead us into the weekend, and point the way to the next bout with unsettled weather. What's ahead, below.

The system which brought heavy snow to parts of the north and showers to the south will largely be finished with the province by Friday morning, exiting overnight into Quebec.
Only in the most eastern parts of Ontario is there any rain likely to fall Friday morning, and even that will be short-lived. In the north, snowfall warnings will have dropped overnight, with the heaviest snow tapered off.
Behind the departing system, winds quickly shift out of the northwest, with gusts up to 60+ km/h possible throughout the day. Weak lake-effect snow showers are expected southeast of Georgian Bay and Lake Huron, bringing a few centimetres of snow to the traditional snowbelts.
Temperature-wise, the warm front will bring temperatures that will have actually peaked overnight when most Ontarians were still in bed, followed quickly by the cold front that will send temperatures plunging by the morning hours.
