Warmer air on the horizon
The weather today will be partly sunny as a few clouds skirt the area from low pressure passing well west and south of Montreal. That system may bring some light snow to southern Ontario into New York and Vermont and maybe a snowflake or two to eastern Ontario. There is the risk of some heavier squalls off Lake Ontario in the 401 corridor from the GTA east to Cobourg. Highs will be "warmer" today up to -17C or 2F. It will be cold again tonight before a moderation in temperatures over the weekend. Highs on Saturday and Sunday will be around -12C. By Monday a warm front will be pushing across the Great Lakes and into southern Quebec. The warm air overriding the cold air at the surface will produce a couple of days of light snow and mixed precipitation. Temperatures will warm above freezing to 2C (36F) briefly on Tuesday. Another cold shot of air will arrive by late next week. This outbreak does not look as severe as the current one was.
