Get those snow shovels ready again — we’re in for a lot of snow next week.

The upcoming week’s weather forecast indicates some heavy snowfall later in the week, with 5 cm of snow falling on Wednesday and up to 15 cm on Thursday.

There will additionally be a small of amount of rain and snow on Tuesday.

On the plus side, temperatures next week will be mostly above seasonal (with a high of 3 degrees Celsius on Tuesday) before dropping again on Friday.

This week’s snow thankfully pales in comparison to the massive Jan. 17 snowstorm that dumped around 45 cm of snow on the region.

The aftermath of the storm saw numerous residents across Ontario became stranded in their homes by huge windrows of hard, chunky snow and ice that blocked many driveways and residential courts.

In Mississauga, the situation prompted City council to pass an emergency motion on Wednesday directing snow plows to not only prioritize clearing the main roads in the wake of a second snowfall on Tuesday night, but to quickly get to the secondary roads in residential neighbourhoods as well.
