    Friday saw a return to seasonal temperatures in southern Ontario -- a welcome change for winter-weary residents.

    "The frigid air that has been locked up in the Great Lakes for weeks is slowly dissipating," says Weather Network meteorologist Brian Dillon.

    "Southerly winds have already started to bring milder temperatures to southern Ontario. Daytime temperatures for Friday and Saturday will be near the seasonal mark, which is three degrees Celsius."

    While temperatures will remain mild through to Tuesday, a series of low pressure systems from the Prairies will bring a cold front through southern Ontario on Saturday, bringing scattered snow showers and breezy conditions, along with the possibility of minor snow accumulation.

    A clipper system will target the region late Sunday evening, persisting through Monday morning.

    "We're looking at trace to 2 cm of snow accumulating in the GTA Monday morning," says Weather Network meteorologist Matt Grinter. 

    "The system should clear out Monday morning."
