Halloween decorations may still linger on some houses, but that can't stop the inevitable Canadian winter from closing in.

According to Environment Canada, there's a 70 per cent chance Hamilton could see its first batch of snow Wednesday afternoon. 

With a high of plus five, afternoon precipitation may turn out to just be rain, and not festive presents from the clouds.

But don't put away the parka just yet, because as the temperature falls overnight to the almost-freezing mark of plus one, Environment Canada predicts a mix of both rain and snow.

The first snowfall of the season is expected to continue throughout the day Thursday.
