Algonquin Park was transformed into a winter wonderland on Wednesday.

According to a tweet from the park’s account, the treetops and ground were blanketed in snow on Wednesday morning.

However, with temperatures a few degrees above the freezing point, by Thursday afternoon the snow had already begun to melt in some areas of the park.

But those who love the frigid temperatures and scenic snow don’t have to worry. Environment Canada has predicted the area could receive showers or flurries overnight.

According to the weather agency’s seven-day forecast, the area is expected to receive more snow on Sunday, with snow and rain predicted to turn into showers and flurries on Monday and Tuesday.
