Much colder temperatures ahead

Much colder temperatures ahead

The high will be 50; after a morning low of 38.

"Christmas Day is looking quite cold", Packingham said, noting people with pets will want to take precautions. Although anecdotal evidence will point to a common theme of cold temps right at Christmas. There's no rain ahead of it, and there's no genuinely cold air behind it.

Tomorrow (Wednesday): Partly sunny and not quite as warm, with highs in the low to mid-50s.

Sunshine and mild temperatures in the 50s will stick around through Thursday. While that's certainly cooler than the mid to upper 50s we enjoyed today, it's not almost as cold as the stuff we shivered to most of last week.

Tomorrow should end up being mostly sunny with temperatures holding in the 30s south, and 20s north. Rainfall totals (including today) will be between one and two inches for most of us by Wednesday.

Wednesday and Thursday will be much nicer with clearer and no rain!

A MILD TUESDAY NIGHT: Light southwest breezes will begin to shift to the north and west. Clouds will begin to build, and a couple showers will be possible.

Winter storm watch this afternoon
Areas east and then southeast of Lake Ontario will be line for the steadiest and heaviest lake snow tonight and Wednesday. Temperatures are expected to pick up Wednesday, reaching a high of 22 before dropping to 10 degrees in the evening.

Our next cold front arrives Friday afternoon, with a 40 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms.

Unfortunately, the next round of warmth looks to also be accompanied by some wet weather, perhaps for most of the holiday weekend. Friday temperatures will drop back into the 40s with the chance of a rain and snow mix as that front pushes through.

According to national forecaster Met Eireann, tonight will be a "mild, cloudy night with patches of rain, drizzle and fog and locally poor visibility".

As well as today's forecast, a preliminary Christmas forecast was released.

Christmas Day will basically be cold. But we're watching closely.

THURSDAY: Partly cloudy skies and cool temperatures will be around for Thursday, with a high of 53 degrees for our first official day of winter.
