    Temperatures are on the rise in southern Ontario but winter isn't over yet, with another storm set to move in Thursday evening.

    An Alberta Clipper will merge with a Colorado low, producing a system that could bring strong wind gusts.

    "This system will bring in a lot of mild air and there is a chance that this could bring all rain to southern Ontario instead of snow," says Weather Network meteorologist Monica Vaswani.

    Up to 30 mm could fall across the region Thursday evening.

    This same system is set to bring 30+cm of snow to communities in northwestern Ontario.

    While southern Ontario's return to mild air will be a welcome change for some, meteorologist say the trend won't last long.

    "Temperatures are set to take a bit of a dive," warns Weather Network meteorologist Patrick Cool.

    "As meteorologists, we can have a look at what very long range computer forecast models are predicting for the next month as a whole ... the pattern of colder than normal temperatures appears to continue. We won’t be able to put away our thick winter coats for some time."
