Warmer, above seasonal temperatures to finally grace southern Ontario this week
Monday, May 5, 2014, 6:33 AM -
After days of rain hit much of southern Ontario last week, the region can expect a much calmer start to this work week.
"Quiet, but cool conditions are expected for the next few days," says Gina Ressler, a meteorologist at The Weather Network.
Residents woke up to temperatures near the freezing mark early Monday, but by the afternoon hours, high pressure will continue to build in with double digit highs and plenty of sunshine expected.
Strong winds have also subsided after some places recorded wind gusts upwards of 60 km/h on Sunday.
"The next low to affect Ontario and Quebec will develop across the central U.S. mid-week," adds Ressler. "The system will bring rain to northwestern Ontario by early Wednesday, and into southern Ontario by late Wednesday into Thursday and Friday."
The good news?
"Temperatures will rise across southern Ontario as the low approaches, and we will likely see the return of 20-degree temperature readings by Thursday/Friday," Ressler says.
In addition, there will be a chance of thundershowers with this low, but it’s still too early to pinpoint exactly where and when, says Ressler.
