Winter weather will engulf Toronto within two weeks

Toronto's been feeling particularly toasty lately. Other than a few flakes of snow last week (we're still in denial about it, okay), for better or for worse, we've been having a gloriously warm fall.

But alas, the good times are coming to an end. By the middle of the month, it'll seem a lot more like winter. That shouldn't come as a surprise, of course, but given that it's 15 degrees out right now, it might be a shock to the system.

"While we expect temperatures to drop during November, there are signs that the decline will be more profound than usual for parts of the Prairies, Ontario and Quebec. During mid to late November, we expect a pattern change which will bring several rounds of below seasonal temperatures to this region," reports the Weather Network.

According to the Weather Network, temperatures will start to plunge some time between November 10 and 17.

And when it gets colder, we might be in for some snowy weather because, "When arctic air does arrive, the contrast in temperature between the lakes and the air crossing the lakes will be greater than what we typically see, and this will help to enhance the threat for substantial lake effect snow squalls in the traditional snow belt areas."

Take advantage of the next few days and get outside while you still can.
