If you are planning to lineup for those early Boxing Day door crasher deals, you might want to be prepare yourself for the elements on Monday.
From Environment Canada…
Not much snow or cold weather in the Christmas stocking for this year. And stormy and very mild on Boxing Day.
Mother Nature seems to be at odds with Santa and Old Man Winter this holiday season, as generally mild air is expected to prevail for most regions over the holidays.
For travellers over the coming days, two main weather systems are expected. The first is Friday night into early Saturday when a fairly moist disturbance originating in southern California will gallop towards Southern Ontario. A few hours of snow will likely leave a blanket of fresh snow for many parts of Southern Ontario by Saturday morning, with 5 to possibly 10 centimetres over the higher terrain of the Dundalk Highlands, and less elsewhere. It should help whiten the Christmas landscape for jolly Old Saint Nick and his furry travelling companions on Christmas Eve.
While Christmas Day will be quiet weather-wise, a Colorado storm is slated to head towards Northern Ontario for Boxing Day. This will usher in rain and near record mild temperatures on Monday. It will likely start as some freezing rain for areas well north of Lake Ontario into Central Ontario as well as Eastern Ontario. Freezing rain warnings may be required as the event approaches.
On behalf of the Ontario Storm Prediction Centre, have a safe and happy holiday.
