Tuesday, May 6, 2014, 9:23 AM - High pressure, sunny skies, calm winds. 

After days of rain hit southern Ontario last week, residents have now traded their umbrellas for sunglasses. 

"Fair conditions will continue for much of the province on Tuesday, although temperatures are still shy of seasonal values," says Weather Network meteorologist Brett Soderholm.

Come Wednesday, parts of the region will see the return to rain showers as a warm front pushes in.

"The next low to affect Ontario and Quebec will develop across the central U.S. mid-week," adds Gina Ressler, another meteorologist at The Weather Network. "The system will bring rain to northwestern Ontario by early Wednesday, and into southern Ontario by late Wednesday into Thursday and Friday."

Heavier amounts of rain are expected on Friday along with a risk of afternoon thunderstorms in the Greater Toronto Area.

The good news?

Temperatures will rise across southern Ontario as the low approaches.

"Temperatures are forecast to reach the 20 degree mark on Friday with humidex values to boot," Soderholm says.
