Just when you thought it was time to hang up your parka for the year and head to the nearest patio, Mother Nature has decided she has other plans in store for Toronto.
While Monday brought some of the warmest temperatures in months to southern Ontario, with Toronto topping 14°C, the mild temperatures will be short-lived as a “stormy, snowy system sweeps in,” according to The Weather Network.
The next disturbance comes in the form of an Alberta clipper, which brings both the threat for thunderstorms and another chance of snow through parts of the region on Tuesday.
“Showers will track across southwestern and south-central Ontario through Tuesday morning, with clear breaks moving in for the afternoon,” said Weather Network meteorologist Kelly Sonnenburg.
However, by Tuesday evening, a high of 1°C is expected along with a 60% chance of rain showers or flurries in Toronto.

However, the clipper is expected to bring down temperatures through mid-week, along with a more-widespread shot of snow as the next system approaches.
On Thursday, a Colorado low will make its way into the region, bringing warmer temperatures to southern Ontario.
And as the system edges into the region and collides with the previous colder temperatures, there will be a chance of snow in Toronto on Thursday.
But as the week continues, warmer temperatures are expected and by Sunday, the sunshine will thankfully return.
