The region has warm to hot, humid summers and cold winters.
Annual precipitation ranges from 750–1,000 mm (30–39 in) and is well distributed throughout the year.
In the northeastern parts of Ontario, extending far as south as Kirkland Lake, the cold waters of Hudson Bay depress summer temperatures, making it cooler than other locations at similar latitudes.
The same is true on the northern shore of Lake Superior, which cools hot humid air from the south, leading to cooler summer temperatures.
In contrast, the larger, northern part of Ontario is sparsely populated with cold winters and heavy forestation.
Despite the absence of any mountainous terrain in the province, there are large areas of uplands, particularly within the Canadian Shield which traverses the province from northwest to southeast and also above the Niagara Escarpment which crosses the south.
Most of this region lies in the lee of the Great Lakes, making for abundant snow in some areas.
In December 2010, the snowbelt set a new record when it was hit by more than a metre of snow within 48 hours.
Northern Ontario occupies roughly 87 percent of the surface area of the province; conversely Southern Ontario contains 94 percent of the population.
