Messy weather rolls into Ontario on Wednesday
Monday, March 17, 2014, 8:17 PM -
Good news and bad news for southern Ontario: The good news is, Monday morning's record-cold temperatures will be a thing of the past come Wednesday.
The bad news: That's the day yet another round of weather is set to roll through the province, bringing snow, rain, or a rain-snow mix, depending on location.
Vacation over, time to get back to work. Two systems look to impact S Ont. this week; Wed and Sat. Both look to bring … rain! Yay!— Mark Robinson (@StormhunterTWN) March 17, 2014
The show starts Wednesday morning, but unlike last Wednesday's event, which was marked by at-times heavy snow and very stiff winds, this event will be accompanied by warmer temperatures.
Weather Network forecasters say areas east of Georgian Bay could see snow, but depending on where the warm front goes, areas from Toronto southward are more likely to see rain.
Cooler early-morning temperatures will make for flurries in some locations, but that will change to all rain as temperatures warm.
"As the storm passes, temperatures will warm, so it should mean less travel chaos," Weather Network meteorologist Brett Soderholm said Monday morning.
Forecasters are also keeping an eye on a system brewing later in the week, which may bring some snow to the region.
Looks like there will be snow mixed into the storm on Saturday, but rain will also be involved. Spring is s-l-o-w-l-y getting here.— Mark Robinson (@StormhunterTWN) March 17, 2014
