Spring may be just two and a half weeks away, but winter is still roaring cold and clear across Ontario.
Frigid temperatures are making a comeback after a system brought accumulating snow to southern Ontario Saturday night into Sunday morning.
Wind chill warnings are widespread across northern and southern Ontario, and forecasters say to expect more of where that came from.
"Cold temperatures are expected to stick around throughout at least mid-week," said Weather Network meteorologist Monica Vaswani.
In northern Ontario, temperatures are forecast to drop near or below -30°C Sunday night and early Monday morning, with wind chill will making it feel like -40 at times.
Meanwhile, wind chill values for southern Ontario will be in the -30's, as temperatures plunge to near or below -20°C Sunday night.
Vaswani adds that conditions are expected to remain clear for at least the next 48 hours, before a trough moves into southern Ontario Tuesday, bringing a dusting of snow.
