It's been the never-ending story across the country, and this week is looking to bring more of the same across Ontario.

"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.

The good news however, is that conditions are expected to remain relatively dry, with the exception of the Snowbelt areas where there is a risk of lake effect flurries.

Meanwhile, many people in Ontario woke up on Sunday morning to a light dusting of snow on their cars.

It's part of a weak low pressure system that brought minor accumulations to the Greater Toronto Area on its way to the Maritimes, and in some places will continue through the day Sunday.

The remaining accumulations aren't expected to be hefty.

However, the snow may prove an annoyance to drivers on Monday morning, due to winds up of to 25 km/h, which would barely register were it not for the fact it will be another frigid day in the province.

The light, fluffy snow hasn't had much of an opportunity to melt, so it might be a good idea to top up your washer fluid Sunday or Monday.

The same low will have more of an impact on Atlantic Canada, where snowfall accumulations of up to 8 cm will be likely in western Nova Scotia, with lighter amounts elsewhere in the Maritimes.

The snow will begin later Sunday, lasting into Monday.
