Most places across the country are already seeing signs of winter. In southern Ontario however, it was feeling more like spring on Monday.
A few flurries were spotted throughout the Greater Toronto Area over the weekend, but no accumulations were reported. A strong southwesterly flow then pushed into the region on Monday bringing unseasonably warm conditions.
Toronto hit a high of 14.5°C, just shy of a record temperature for this time of year. Collingwood was even warmer as the daytime high soared to nearly 17°C. That was enough to make it the hot spot of the entire country.
With the mild temperatures however, came a risk for some non-severe thunderstorms throughout the evening hours. The wet weather is expected to ease on Tuesday and temperatures will gradually return to seasonal values by the end of the week.
While the region is enjoying spring-like conditions, areas farther north are being walloped with snow. Up to 15 cm is possible for places north and west of Wawa through Wednesday.
