Ontario: Mild start to the week before temperatures plummet

  Ontario: Mild start to the week before temperatures plummet Ontario slips into a colder pattern for the first weeks of November.Monday's conditions will seem mild compared to the cooling temperature trend that will be widespread across southern Ontario this week. The plummeting temperatures are also creating the conditions for flakes to fly in southern parts of the province, including the Greater Toronto Area. Details and timing, below.

Fall -- and it is still fall, technically, even though many Canadians can look outside and see snow right now -- has a well-earned reputation for wild temperature swings. That temperamental nature has been on excellent display this week across North America, as temperatures dip to the freezing mark along the coast of the Gulf of Mexico while hitting the upper teens in Atlantic Canada, and parts of southern Ontario wake up colder than Ellesmere Island.

The coldest place in Canada based on average yearly temperature is Eureka, Nunavut, where the temperature averages at −19.7 °C or −3.5 °F for the year. However, the coldest temperature ever recorded in Canada was −63 °C or −81.4 °F in Snag, Yukon. Weather extremes in Canada.

We have already hit our high temperature for today - currently above freezing, but temperatures will At times this arctic air will spread into the Great Lakes region, though temperatures will not be as cold However, a shift in the pattern is still expected - though substantially delayed from what was


The jet stream plays a crucial role in our temperature pattern, and this setup is no exception. Early-season cold temperatures are flooding much of eastern North America this week as the jet stream dips low over the Great Lakes. While it's early in the season for true 'cross-polar flow' -- where the jet funnels air directly from Siberia into eastern North America -- the current cold blast did get a helping hand from the far side of the Arctic earlier this week.

  The temperature is going all the way down to -10 C later this week It was a nice summer, wasn’t it? There were some spectacular stretches of warm weather and bright, sunny skies.

It’s about to get cold. There were some spectacular stretches of warm weather and bright, sunny skies.

+ Toronto has been issued its first extreme cold weather alert of the season, while snowfall and potentially record falling temperatures are expected in the city and surrounding area late Thursday afternoon and into the evening as a cold front moves through the region.

In fact, numerous temperature records across Ontario were broken on Thursday as frigid air continues to hover across the province. “With temperatures expected to remain very cold through early next week Farnell said Lake Simcoe has frozen over and other lakes have seen a big increase in ice

Toronto, Hamilton, and Ottawa airports all set new record lows Wednesday morning, as temperatures dipped into the minus teens, blasting past records set in 1986. New records were also set in Peterborough, Brantford, Barrie, Windsor, and Sarnia, among others. Thanks to this direct freezing flow, CFB Borden, near Barrie, dropped down to -24ºC under clear skies early Wednesday while Alert, Nunavut -- the northernmost permanently inhabited place on Earth -- was only -25ºC. Just after dawn at Base Borden, the temperature in the two places was the same at -23ºC (though, to be fair, sunrise in Alert won't happen now until next February).


If we look back up at that map, you might notice the same jet that's bringing cold air to the Great Lakes sails north over Atlantic Canada. Just as it does for the middle part of the continent, that translates to the temperature pattern out east, too.

Newly analysed Nasa satellite data from east Antarctica shows Earth has set a new record for Ice scientist Ted Scambos at the National Snow and Ice Data Centre announced the cold facts at the "I'm confident that these pockets are the coldest places on Earth." However, it won't be in the

Atlantic Canada was one of the continent's hot spots on Wednesday, with an unlikely suspect -- St. John's, Newfoundland -- leading the way with a high of about 16ºC. That's not only about 10 degrees above average for this time of year. It was also keeping pace with the temperature in Los Angeles this morning, and tied with the high further north in San Francisco.

Unlike their SoCal cousins, however, Newfoundland's hot streak isn't going to last. A cold front cutting through by Thursday morning will shove temperatures back to seasonal -- and even below -- for the rest of the week.
