Ontario faces the start of yet another frigid week, but a comparative warm-up is coming
Monday, February 10, 2014, 10:47 -
It's been a story of never-ending cold across the country, and people in Ontario at least can expect no better until past mid-week.
"Below seasonal temperatures will continue across Ontario through Wednesday, before warming up to more seasonal temperatures on Thursday," said Matt Grinter, a meteorologist at The Weather Network.
There was nothing seasonal about the past weekend, with very cold temperatures the norm, with the wind chill factor reaching down into the negative double digits.
Many Ontarians had to wipe a dusting snow off their cars on Sunday.
While nothing remotely as bad as the storm of the past week, even those small accumulations of a couple of centimetres seemed to catch some highway drivers unaware.

The good news however, is that conditions are expected to remain relatively dry Monday, with the exception of the Snowbelt areas where there is a risk of lake effect flurries.
Sunday's snow, and Monday morning's flurries, is part of low pressure system that brought minor accumulations to the Greater Toronto Area on its way to the Maritimes, leaving behind some flurries in southern Ontario.
