Another quick hit from Snow eyes Ontario before a warmup arrives

At least nobody can say that Ontario’s weather has been dull lately.

After a violent storm that closed roads in Hamilton on Friday and sparked a full-fledged snowstorm, the province took only a brief breather on Saturday before focusing on the next weak system, which arrived on Sunday.

Beyond this upcoming system, we’re looking forward to a period of milder air into mid-week and the potential for another system by the end of the week – just in time for folks to return home from the March holidays.

DON’T MISS: La Niña is finally over. What does this mean for Canada’s prognosis?

Relatively calm conditions graced the skies over Ontario on Saturday after a series of snowy Friday commutes that saw vacationers start their March holidays at a slow and rocky start.

Our next system is the same low that brought snowstorm conditions to the southern prairies on Saturday, resulting in a near-white end in southeastern Saskatchewan for hours.



Thankfully, this system will lose much of its clout when it hits the Great Lakes late Sunday, but we’re still assessing the potential for light snow accumulation through Monday.

Light snow and snow showers will linger throughout southern and eastern Ontario during the day, with the best chances for more consistent snowfall over the eastern parts of the province.

People around Ottawa could see just enough to shovel, while crowds near the greater Toronto area should remain more of a nuisance.

However, even a tiny layer of snow can make roads slippery, especially when the air temperature is around freezing. Travelers should allow a little extra time for their journeys on Monday to allow for possible delays.



Behind this system, a slug of milder air will rush into the region as a ridge forms over the eastern half of the country.

Temperatures will rise into the mid-single digits across much of southern Ontario by mid-week, with the potential for lows that remain above zero on Thursday evening.



It won’t last long, unfortunately, as cooler air returns by the end of the week as forecasters monitor the progress of another system that could threaten Ontario.

It’s a complex setup that’s still fuzzy this far out, so details on precipitation types or areas that may have the most chaotic conditions are still a few days from clarity. However, there is a possibility that this system will affect people returning home from the March holidays. Check back earlier this week to learn more about this potential.
