Sweaters, boots and some heat in the car-- all common signs that autumn is near. 

Saturday marks the official start to the fall season, but chilly temperatures this week had Ontarians dressing in layers a little early. 

"With a trough over the Great Lakes, we had below seasonal conditions on Wednesday," says Brian Dillon, a meteorologist at The Weather Network. "In fact, Toronto saw it's coldest day since June 1 with a daytime high of only 15.3 degrees." 

Some places will see an increase in temperatures heading into the weekend, but the downfall will be unsettled conditions and scattered rain.

"And after the Fall Equinox on Saturday, temperatures will drop below seasonal once again," says Dillon.

Daytime highs in the low to mid-teens are forecast for both Sunday and Monday. 

"During fall, the atmosphere is attempting to balance itself into winter mode so there are a lot of ups and downs with temperatures as well as precipitation patterns," explains Dayna Vettese, another meteorologist at The Weather Network.
