Spring sneak peek: Temperatures to reach almost 20°C in Toronto this week

Mar 10 2021, 6:56 am

Here’s a spring sneak peek: it looks like some spring showers will be making an appearance this week.

According to The Weather Network, on Thursday, temperatures in the city will almost reach 20°C, with 18°C being recorded and an 80% chance of rain.

Tomorrow will be the warmest day yet as Toronto starts to exit winter and enter the spring season.

While the weather will be warmer, in Southern Ontario, the network says, “Thursday will be harder to enjoy across the south, with showers, strong winds, and perhaps even the first rumbles of thunder of 2021.”

The bulk of the rain is expected to arrive Thursday, petering out by pre-dawn Friday. While the amounts won’t be excessive, when combined with continuing warm temperatures lingering snow piles won’t be sticking around.

Strong wind gusts will begin ramping up Wednesday afternoon. The strongest gusts will be later on Thursday in the 60-80 km/h range, enough to cause some damage to unsecured structures in Southern Ontario.

Once the predicted rainfall on Thursday dissipates, it looks like a sunny week ahead in the Toronto area from Friday onwards.

However, temperatures will drop with 9°C on Friday, then 3°C on Saturday, and 5°C on Sunday. Next week there will be a mix of sun and cloud with a few flurries returning on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Although it might be raining on Thursday, it looks like the first sign of spring showers is arriving before we head into Daylight Saving Time on Sunday.

That’s cause for some singing in the rain, right?
