Showers tapering off in Ontario

March 29, 2010 — It may have been a soggy Sunday, but the skies are clearing for the rest of the week in southern Ontario.

You'll need your rain boots a little longer today, but before long you could be trading them in for shorts and T-shirts.

A low that brought showers to southern Ontario yesterday is making its way out of the province. By this afternoon, the skies will be mostly clear in the Greater Toronto Area. And that's not even the best part.

'Temperatures will be warming every day this week in southern Ontario,' says Weather Network meteorologist Brian Dillon. 'By Friday, we could even have a humidex in the city of Toronto.'

That's right, a humidex.

Temperatures could be climbing into the 20's as early as Thursday or Friday, and could be feeling even warmer than that. Quite a contrast to last Friday, when the thermometre was sitting below freezing for most of the day.

It's just one example of why forecasters often refer to the season as a 'meteorological roller coaster.'

'We get these springs of warmth that come in from the U.S. and then we knock it down again with that arctic air that sometimes drops down,' explains Weather Network meteorologist Chris Scott. 'So the next few weeks we can expect a lot of ups and downs, big swings in temperatures and even precipitation.

In this case, the temperature swing will be going up for the rest of the week, and could mean beaches and barbecues for the upcoming long weekend.
