Get those shovels out, you’re going to need them.

Environment Canada meteorologist Glenn Robinson said southern Ontario could be hit with “significant snowfall” beginning Wednesday afternoon and continuing through Thursday.

According to Robinson, Toronto and Ottawa can expect to see between 10 and 20 centimeters.

“The models are starting to show we could have some pretty heavy snowfall on Wednesday,” Robinson said.

Ontarians can also expect temperatures to cool down over the next few days as Robinson said it looks like we are getting back to typical seasonal temperatures.

Environment Canada forecasts a high of 3 C and a low of -9 C this week.

Robinson added that cooling temperatures are likely unrelated to the Siberian polar vortex affecting western Canada this week.

“The polar vortex that was exceptionally cold (does) not come here,” Robinson said. “I would just blame (the cold front) a changing pattern.”
