'Spectacular' stretch of fall weather en route to southern Ontario

An "extradordinary" stretch of fall weather is headed to southern Ontario this week, following a blast of snow, howling winds and chilly rain that kicked off November. Tuesday will remain below seasonal, but will be dry. Temperatures will start to climb Wednesday, with daytime highs hitting the mid-teens, accompanied by plenty of sunshine. Some places in the region could even see another day or two of 20°C weather by late weekend. More on this blast of early October-like, even late September-like, warmth ahead, below.

WEATHER HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Tuesday dries out in the south, chilly temperatures linger

  • Temperatures begin to climb mid-week, with well above seasonal temperatures

  • Opportunity to see another 20°C day on the weekend

TUESDAY: DRYING OUT IN THE SOUTH, BELOW SEASONAL TEMPERATURES LINGER

After a snowy, windy and rainy start to November, conditions will improve in southern Ontario Tuesday as the winter-like weather pushes out. It will be a mainly overcast day, though there will be peeks of sun at times.

Below seasonal temperatures will linger for one more day, before an extended period of 'spectacular' fall weather moves in.

Daytime highs Tuesday will remain in the single digits for most areas in the south, even hovering close to the freezing mark in eastern areas. Parts of southwestern Ontario may see temperatures hit the low teens.

WEDNESDAY AND BEYOND: 'EXTRAORDINARY' STRETCH OF SPECTACULAR FALL WEATHER, MILD TEMPERATURES AHEAD

Any snow that has fallen won't be around for long, as the warmer weather quickly surges back in, sending daytime highs soaring well above seasonal values.

In fact, there will be an extraordinary stretch of spectacular fall weather for southern Ontario starting Wednesday and continuing through early next week, according to Weather Network meteorologist Dr. Doug Gillham.

"Temperatures will be more typical of early October and even late September for 7 days with high temperatures reaching the mid- to upper-teens," says Gillham. "We will also see an abundance of sunshine throughout this stretch of warm weather, as November will defy its reputation of being a gloomy month."

According to Gillham, it's possible that many areas will reach 20°C one or two more times, especially by late weekend and early next week, including the GTA and perhaps Ottawa.

Next week, it looks like a cold front will cross the region late Tuesday, bringing showers and possibly a thunderstorm. Temperatures are expected to trend closer to seasonal by mid-to late-week, but no extended periods of cold weather are in sight – quite a contrast to the past two Novembers.
