A mild and sunny weekend has made way for cool, wet and windy work week in parts of Ontario.
“It's a typical fall pattern,” says Dayna Vettese, a meteorologist at The Weather Network. “Today we're looking at scattered showers, breezy conditions and seasonal temperatures. There is a change on the way as the week goes on, though.”
Areas to the north of Toronto, such as Barrie and cottage country, may see unsettled weather this week. There's even the potential for snow. Places like Orillia and Peterborough could get some wet flurries overnight, but northern Ontario is most at risk of a rain-snow mix.
The wet weather stayed away from southern Ontario during the weekend. People saw bright blue skies and sunshine over the past couple of days. The region didn't feel much of a nor'easter that slapped Atlantic Canada and southern Quebec.
But the nor'easter did make it feel gusty in southern Ontario. On Sunday, some peak wind gusts were 54 km/h in Toronto, 46 km/h in Kitchener, and 41 km/h in Borden.
“In southern Ontario, the jet stream was sitting almost over us, if not a little to the north, allowing warm air to push in. Any low pressure systems or precipitation stayed to the north and east of Toronto,” says Vettese.
