Environment Canada says the North Hastings area will get hit with its first real dose of cold weather this weekend.

With forecasted daytime highs below the freezing mark this weekend, Meteorologist Geoff Coulson says the temperature is below where it should be for this time of year.

He says this is because of a cold front coming in from areas to the Northwest of here. Although it will be colder-than-usual this weekend, Coulson says the temperature will be a little more seasonal next week.

But, Coulson also says November is the month when the temperature starts getting colder, and when snow begins to fall. The North Hastings area normally gets between 30 to 35 centimetres of snow during November.
