The long and harsh winter must have seemed like a bad dream across southern Ontario this weekend.

It wasn't the first time the temperatures crept up past the 20-degree mark, nor did it even bring the hottest temperature the province had seen this year (Windsor cracked 30C last weekend).

Temperatures in Canada have been up and down since the start of the spring, with each warm stint followed by a cooldown, so every warm, sunny day has been welcomed, as this weekend has almost certainly been by Ontarians.

But with hot weather comes convection, and elevated thunderstorm risk, beginning tonight as a low pressure system begins to affect the province.

It will usher in several days of rain until at least Thursday, with an accompanying cooldown except for a spike on Wednesday.

The rain showers start Sunday night in southwestern Ontario, where the risk of non-severe and severe thunderstorms will be greatest on Monday.

As of Sunday morning, there were no severe thunderstorm watches or warnings in place for the region, but that could change as the system approaches.
