This month started mild with not much snow but Mississauga, Brampton, Hamilton and beyond are about to get a wallop of winter including temperatures feeling as low as -30 C next week.

Today (Jan. 25), a snowfall warning is in effect for Mississauga, Brampton, Hamilton, Burlington, Oakville, Caledon, Halton Hills and Milton. These communities could get 15 to 20 centimetres of snow.

Snow is expected to start this afternoon and continue overnight into Thursday.

But the winter weather doesn’t end there.

Some weather forecasters are predicting dips below -30 C in southern Ontario for Groundhog Day (Feb. 2). The U.S. Global Forecast System shows temperatures as low as -26 F (-32 C).

“The groundhogs may just throw in the towel and not even emerge this year,” writes weather chaser David Piano.

But for now, Environment Canada and the Weather Network are predicting slightly warmer temperatures next week.

Environment Canada predicts lows of -10 on Sunday (Jan. 29) and Monday for Mississauga. And a bit warmer lows for Hamilton at -8.

But later in the week, the Weather Network predicts a dip to -16 C and -20 C on Thursday (Feb. 2) and Friday (Feb. 3) in Mississauga. Brampton could get down to -22 C on Friday. Hamilton could drop to -19 on Friday (Feb. 3).

So bundle up and prepare for more winter weather ahead.
