It is indeed December 12, 2012, and if that is not enough twelves for you, it is -12C right now here on L'Ile Perrot, our overnight low so far. It was a very cold night across the area with lows in the -10 to -15C ranges, especially where some snow cover is on the ground. Things will warm up today with some partly cloudy skies. There is even the risk of some flurries today as a weak trough from the Great Lakes rotates across the St. Lawrence Valley. Radar is showing some snow showers moving across eastern Ontario this morning, Ottawa had light snow in the last hour. These snow showers will weaken with time, but they may put down a dusting in some area through the noon hour. If you are heading southwest along the 401 to Toronto you may encounter a more robust snow shower or two west of Brockville towards Kingston and south to Watertown, here as well they will taper off this afternoon. Otherwise look for fair skies and highs around -2C today. The balance of the work week looks dry with temperatures a little above normal. By the weekend some snow may be in the forecast. A pattern change will try to get going into next week with several changes for snow before Christmas Day along with colder temperatures.
