Temperatures are expected to plummet in the Halton region Tuesday night and into Wednesday thanks to heavy winds and an active storm track through southern Ontario.

It could feel like minus-12 for parts of the region, as shots of snow is also expected late Tuesday.

Other parts of Ontario, meanwhile, are expecting double-digit snow totals in centimetres.

If you’re sensitive to sudden and drastic changes in temperature, meanwhile, it could be a rough week. 

“An unsettled pattern will keep its grip on southern Ontario this week, complete with quick shots of snow, lake-effect bands, and even a surge of milder air and rain to close out the workweek,” according to The Weather Network. “This active storm track has caught forecasters’ attention, however, as the potential for a messy, high-impact winter storm looms for the weekend.”

It’ll feel more like spring at certain points this week as more rain than snow is expected for much of southern Ontario on Friday, with temperatures creeping into the high single digits; possibly even breaking the plus-10 mark.

Be prepared for anything in a Jekyll and Hyde start to 2020.
