The good news is that double-digit temperatures are moving into southern Ontario. 

"We're looking at a high of 10°C for Toronto on Friday," says Weather Network meteorologist Matt Grinter, noting that 7°C is seasonal for this time of year.

The bad news?

The warmer weather will be accompanied by rain -- but Grinter is quick to point out that the wet conditions will be short-lived.

"People in southern Ontario can look forward to Sunday and Monday. On those days, we're expecting seasonal temperatures, clear skies and calm conditions."

Despite the rain, the temperature climb will likely be a welcome change for many, after weeks of below-seasonal temperatures.

On Thursday, parts of southern Ontario set new record lows as temperatures plunged well below the freezing mark. In some places, it dipped to the minus 20s (without wind chill), smashing records that date back more than half a century.

Another storm system may not be what you had in mind for the first full week of spring, but it could always be worse. 

Atlantic Canadians are currently digging out of 50+ cm of snow and have been dealing with record hurricane force wind gusts. It's all part of a powerful Nor'easter that swept through the region Wednesday making it the strongest storm of this winter season.
