From rain and freezing temperatures to clear skies and spring-like conditions, Ontario has seen it all this week.
The wacky weather began Tuesday evening, when a storm system brought freezing rain and ice to most of the province. It moved through the area quickly, and was replaced with unseasonably warm weather on Friday.
Pearson airport reported a high of 15.7ºC Friday afternoon, inching past the previous record of 15.6ºC that was set in 2001. Collingwood reached a balmy 17ºC, breaking the town's previously-held record of 16.4ºC -- and making it Ontario's “hot spot” for the day.
Students at the University of Western Ontario in London were loving the balmy weather.
“I'm going to be reading some books out on my porch instead of cooped up under blankets like I would normally expect from November,” one student said of her weekend plans.
Unfortunately, the outlook won't be as bright for Sunday. Rain will start moving into the area overnight, and by Sunday evening, some places in Southern Ontario could see 25 millimetres of rain.
And winter isn't over for everyone: northeastern Ontario is bracing for a wallop of winter that will begin Friday evening and last for much of the weekend.
