Get ready to bundle up — there are flurries and colder temperatures in the forecast for much of southern Ontario.

After some milder temperatures this week, the cold weather is pushing through with a chance of flurries in Mississauga, Hamilton, Brampton and Halton on Friday (Nov. 24).

Today, the temperature hit a high of 6 C but tomorrow morning it could drop to -6 C and feel like a frigid -11 C with the windchill, according to Environment Canada. A high of zero is expected.

And the national weather forecaster is predicting a 30 per cent chance of flurries tomorrow for much of southern Ontario.

Though there isn’t usually much snow this time of year in the area, it does happen. Back in 1950, a record 30.5 cm of snow fell in the region on Nov. 24, according to Environment Canada.

Normally, temperatures are a bit warmer. The average high is 5.1 C and the low is -2.2 C. The warmest it has been on Nov. 24 was 15 C in 1945 and the coldest was -12 C in 2005.

It doesn’t warm up much on the weekend with a high of 3 C expected for Saturday and some sunny skies.
