Special weather statement in effect for:
- Niagara Falls – Welland – Southern Niagara Region
- St. Catharines – Grimsby – Northern Niagara Region
Winter has officially arrived, but mother nature seems to be ignoring that factor with the milder weather settling into the region over the next few days.
Some rain is expected on Tuesday as a developing low pressure system over the American Midwest tracks towards the Great Lakes. Some freezing rain is expected Tuesday in parts of Eastern Ontario before the milder conditions arrive there later in the day. A freezing rain warning is in effect for this area.
Mild temperatures, rain, and maybe even a few thunderstorms are expected on Christmas Eve. Temperatures should reach the high single digits in many areas and some locales could even nudge into the low teens. A few high temperature records for the day could be broken, especially for locales in Eastern Ontario.
On Christmas Day, cooler temperatures, strong winds and some wet flurries are likely although don’t hold your breath for the accumulation needed for a white Christmas.
Oh well, we can all still dream of a white Christmas!
