It's going to warm up to 9°C in Toronto this weekend

From frigid days to snowstorms and freezing rain, Toronto has not been getting much of a break when it comes to weather lately.

So you’d think the fact that The Weather Network says it’ll be 9°C in the city on Sunday would be good news.

But alongside that warm weather, there’s going to be a major weather system moving in that’ll bring rain and high winds.

The storm will begin on Saturday, when the temperature will be hovering around 1°C.

The system will throw “soaking rain” into southwestern Ontario by Saturday evening, “spreading eastward throughout the night with a rumble of thunder not out of the question.”

The rain has the potential to continue into Sunday morning, when temperatures should reach 9°C.

And in the aftermath, there’s “damaging wind potential with the threat for power outages.”

But things are looking like they’re going to cool down, literally and metaphorically, by Monday. Toronto will start the week with below-freezing temperatures of -3°C and a partly sunny sky.

So despite the warmth, it’s probably a good idea to stay hunkered down this weekend.

Yet again.
