March Break has started for Ontario schools, and while weather for the holiday week famously varies dramatically year-to-year, this year’s edition seems set to vary wildly all in one week.
Snow showers and chilly winds will give way to a very spring-like storm and soaring temperatures as the week goes on, with the chance for our first 20ºC reading of 2019 in the province.
Gusty winds persist on Monday around Great Lakes, lake-effect snow bands from Lake Huron, Georgian Bay, lingering snow showers Nickel Belt, besides New Colorado low to track into Great Lakes Wednesday/Thursday. The system pulls well above-seasonal warmth into southern Ontario.
Strong winds in the wake of Sunday’s Colorado low made it difficult to enjoy the milder temperatures moving into southern Ontario, as lingering showers were whipped by winds gusting as high as 90 km/h through the day.
While they will be tamer, those winds will stir on Monday, and they’ll be spurring a bit of lake-effect snow near the shores of Georgian Bay and Lake Huron.
