The nation remains split by a cold front- chilly air to the west, with a much milder feel in the east. Tonight, all of that begins to change.
We’re anticipating the potent cold front will bring rain and wind through the overnight. A bit of thunder and lightning isn’t out of the question. By the Monday morning commute however, much of the activity will have passed. We may see a brief changeover from rain to snow showers as the colder air begins to filter in, although high pressure and drier air should cut things off. We may even see some sunshine in the afternoon.
While Monday will start out with above average warmth, the afternoon will feature dropping temperatures. Expect a return to the low 30s by the end of the day. While the temps fall, we’re not expecting much of a response from Lake Ontario. A few flurries are possible to the southeast of Lake Ontario, although nothing is expected to accumulate.
High temperatures will be much closer to January standards through the middle of the week before even colder air enters Wednesday night into Thursday. Alongside this colder air will be several small disturbances that will bring the chance for snow showers.
