Fall was in the air over the weekend, but for Labour Day, summer temperatures are back in full swing.
Conditions have been crisp across the province, with periods of rain showers and gusty winds. Early Monday morning, temperatures were still hovering in the single digits for places like Muskoka and Kingston. Toronto was feeling breezy at a chilly 12.
However, the weather is taking a warmer turn with an approaching system. “With the incoming low pressure system into the province for Labour Day, temperatures will slowly be rising throughout the day to the low twenties with breezy conditions,” explains Brian Dillon, a meteorologist with The Weather Network. He adds that it's expected to sky-rocket into the high 20's, which is a great way to end the chilly long weekend, at least in terms of temperatures.
Keep in mind there's the chance of lake effect showers and an abundance of cloud cover. This will make it difficult for the sun to peak through, much to the dismay of sun worshippers.
The warm conditions are expected to remain in place for Tuesday, but pack an umbrella for the first day of school, because rain could pop up. Then on Wednesday, get ready for a cool down. Kids may have to wear a sweater to class, because a cold front is arriving which will drop temperatures back to seasonal.
Meanwhile, northern Ontario is going to see a blast of chilly and wet weather. Unsettled conditions are expected throughout the week. “With our jet stream fluctuating across the Prairies, new low pressure systems are coming on shore and moving slowly around the north.”
