Southern Ontario: Wind chill warning in effect, weekend storm on the way
Tuesday, February 25, 2014, 7:50 PM -
Frigid temperatures and lake effect snow.
That pretty much sums up the week in southern Ontario.
"We've seen 79 consecutive days of snow cover at Toronto Pearson Airport, and we're going to blow past the record of 81 days this week," says Weather Network meteorologist Doug Gillham.
Lake effect snow is expected to continue for the next few days, with another system is the works later this week.
Between 2-5 cm is expected on Saturday, with another 2-5 cm forecast Sunday.
"On Monday, the system will track south, putting southern Ontario on the edge of a heavy band of snow," Gillham adds.
