Toronto suburbs to get first snowfall of season tonight

The first snowfall of the year could hit the Greater Toronto Area tonight, but it looks like the city itself will be spared its first run in with winter weather. Anywhere from two to five centimetres of snow is expected for areas to the north of Toronto like Barrie.

According to an Environment Canada special weather report, wet snow is likely tonight. "Well, it was bound to happen eventually," reads the report. "For what seemed like an eternal summer which lingered well into September and even October, snow is about to make its first appearance of the season."

Toronto, on the other hand, might see some rain. There's lots of precipitation in the forecast for the rest of the week, but hey, at least it's supposed to be 16C on Saturday!
