Temperatures continued to climb across southern Ontario on Easter Sunday, where sunny, clear skies greeted early risers. 

Spring-like temperatures will continue to dominate the region on Monday, where a forecast high of 20° C is expected for Toronto. 

But just as you're gearing up to head back to work or school, a low pressure system will bring showers to southern Ontario Monday night into Tuesday afternoon.

Less than 5 mm is expected across the GTA, with heavier amounts expected in the Parry Sound and Muskoka region, stretching along to the Ottawa Valley. 

A special weather statement has been issued by Environment Canada for areas expecting 10-20 mm of rainfall, including Ottawa, Algonquin and Muskoka.
