Tuesday’s weather will feature a welcome reprieve from the wintry mess that made for travel headaches across southern Ontario on Monday. We’re enjoying a relatively mild end to December across the region as slightly above-seasonal temperatures bathe the region through this weekend. An active weather pattern will see several opportunities for rain, snow, and ice through the weekend. More on what to expect in the coming days and beyond, below.

TUESDAY AND WEDNESDAY: BRIEF SNOW POSSIBLE TUESDAY NIGHT
It’s going to be a relatively pleasant Tuesday across southern Ontario, with partly cloudy skies for most and temperatures hovering a few degrees above freezing.
A weak system will arrive in the Great Lakes region on Tuesday night, bringing Ontario another chance for snow.
The greatest opportunity for accumulating snow on Tuesday night will spread across northern Ontario, though the southern part of the province could see a couple of short-lived centimetres of snow by Wednesday.
Tuesday night’s snow should be more conversational than a nuisance, but watch out for some slick spots on the roads on Wednesday morning, especially in southwestern Ontario.
THURSDAY AND BEYOND: TWO MORE SYSTEMS FOLLOWED BY A PATTERN CHANGE
Another system will creep into southern Ontario overnight Wednesday, bringing the region another chance for a mixed bag of rain, freezing rain, and snow, potentially hampering your commute once again. Be sure to check back for details as the system draws closer.
Temperatures will remain seasonal or slightly above seasonal across the region through the end of the month as Arctic air remains bottled up across Western Canada. Daytime highs look to be a little above zero for many communities across the region, though with ample cloud cover.
Our next big system will be a Colorado low racing toward the Great Lakes this weekend, which could bring the whole spectrum of precipitation to southern and eastern Ontario. The system will precede a slight pattern shift heading into the first week of January, allowing colder air to spread into Ontario.
