Toronto will be getting its first taste of winter this weekend.
After what’s been a remarkably warm November, temperatures will fall to 4°C Saturday afternoon.
A low of zero is forecast for overnight.
Environment Canada says a chance of flurries is possible Saturday evening into the day Sunday, as temperatures hover around the freezing degree mark.
Meteorologist Geoff Coulson says the cold weather is here to stick around.
“We’re likely going to finish off the month of November with more seasonal temperatures, and more opportunity for a messy mix of rain and snow from passing systems over the next few weeks.”
Those looking to head out to Christmas events over the weekend should bundle up.
Coulson says it could snow in time for the Santa Claus parade on Sunday.
“We’re looking a temperatures by the time Santa’s working his way down the streets of Toronto of only about 2°C on Sunday afternoon. Winds from the north and northwest are going to make it feel much colder than that,” he says.
“We could still see a few flurries down here.”
The 112th annual Toronto Santa Claus Parade begins at Bloor and Christie Streets at 12:30pm Sunday.
The Toronto Christmas Market opened in the Distillery District Friday evening and continues with daily festivities until December 22nd.
