BACK TO THE BATTLE BETWEEN WARM AND COOL AIR INTO EARLY JUNE
While seasonal, or at least near-seasonal, temperatures are in the cards for the last week of the month, bursts of unsettled weather will mar otherwise pleasant spring weather.
"The middle of next week will bring a return to a familiar pattern in which southern Ontario will once again be the battle zone between summer-like weather to our south and cooler weather to our north," Gillham says, adding that this will bring an increasing threat for a couple of periods of showers, thunderstorms and changeable temperatures.
By late next week and into the first week of June, cooler than seasonal temperatures will once again dominate the region, "but, keep in mind that our "normal" high temperatures will be in the lower 20s by this time, so a few degrees cooler than seasonal will still be more pleasant than what we have seen for most of the spring," adds Gillham.
