The GTA should expect its first taste of winter this week.

“Portions of southern Ontario are getting a sneak preview of the winter season this week, with rounds of lake effect snow, graupel (small frozen pellets), showers and cool temperatures,” according to The Weather Network. “The setup is part of a flip-flopping pattern that will unfold through November before eventually turning consistently colder as we head into December.

“Those needing to take to the roads will need to be aware before doing so, as the lake-effect snow can impact travel in rapidly changing conditions in some locales. The first winter weather travel advisories of the season were issued for parts of the region early Wednesday.”

Environment Canada Toronto predicts a high Thursday of 8C with a 30% chance of showers in the afternoon. As for Friday and Saturday, the forecast calls for a high of 9C on both days.

“Above seasonal temperatures”  will dominate next week, according to The Weather Network,  with highs in the double-digits.
