Above Seasonal and Abundant Sunshine for Southern Ontario

An area of high pressure south of the border is expected to move eastwards on Monday and cement its presence until Wednesday, thereby keeping tempestuous weather at bay.

Beginning Monday, February 26th, abundant sunshine is expected to spread and flourish across the entire region giving residents a “taste” of spring weather.

While temperatures on Monday are expected to reach the upper single-digits, on Tuesday and Wednesday, residents can welcome temperatures into the low-teens. On the contrary, temperatures will be sliced in half on Thursday and thereafter for the foreseeable future.
