The same low pressure system that brought heavy snow to the Prairiesover the weekend, brought a brief taste of summer to parts of central and southern Ontario.

On Sunday, warm air from the south resulted in record breaking temperatures.The city of Toronto hit 18.4C, smashing a daily record set over 70 years ago.

Monday was another record setting day.

While most people enjoyed the rare t-shirt weather in November, the warm-up was short lived.

"A passing cold front has ushered in cooler temperatures once again," says Dayna Vettese, a meteorologist at The Weather Network. "Residents woke up to temperatures in the mid-teens on Monday and by early Tuesday, temperatures were closer to 2C."

In addition to bundling up, some people may need to dig out their snow brush as well.

"Lake effect flurries and gusty winds are expected in some areas Tuesday, which could reduce visibility on the roads," warns Vettese.

Motorists are urged to adjust their driving habits as conditions deteriorate.
