Mother nature delivers some snow for the beginning of November.
An Arctic cold front continues to push south over Southern Ontario overnight.
Snow or wet snow has been falling across parts of Southern Ontario this past evening. Regions closer to Lake Ontario are still reporting rain but this rain will change to snow after midnight as temperatures drop behind the cold front.
Total snowfall amounts of 2 to 5 cm are likely south of Georgian Bay by morning, particularly over areas of higher elevation. It may even exceed 5 cm in some locales above the escarpment into the Dundalk Highlands. A few centimetres are also possible from areas near Kitchener to Caledon and eastward through York region. To the east of Georgian Bay, total amounts of near 10 cm will be possible by morning. However actual snowfall accumulation on the ground in some areas may be less due to melting on the still relatively warm ground.
The snow is expected to taper off early this morning as the system pulls away to the southeast.
