Enjoy the spring-like temperatures today, the weather is about to change, again, in southern Ontario.

The rollercoaster weather continues with more ups and downs in the coming days.

The temperature was expected to hit a high of 10 C today (Feb. 22) in Mississauga, Brampton, Hamilton, Burlington, Oakville and much of Durham Region.

These spring-like temperatures are not seasonal. The average high for this time of year should be from zero to 1 C and lows should be around -8 C.

However, the region is about to do a 180.

“Alright southern Ontario, it’s your turn. A cold front is coming!” Environment and Climate Change Canada said in a post on X. “Temperatures Friday are expected to make a nosedive from well above normal to below normal as the day progresses.”

A high of 4 C is expected on Friday (Feb. 23) with a chance of flurries and/or rain, in the GTA. Lows could reach a bone-chilling -16 C in Durham Region and -13 C in Peel and Halton.

Then on Saturday, the daytime high will only reach from -3 C in Mississauga and area, and -5 C in Durham and lows are down to -11 C. But the good news is there are sunny skies expected across southern Ontario on Saturday.

But brace yourself for another warm turn next week.

Environment and Climate Change Canada is calling for a high of 12 C on Tuesday (Feb. 27) in Mississauga, Brampton, Burlington and Oakville. Around 10 or 11 C is expected in Hamilton and Oshawa.

Checking the forecast and dressing in layers seems like the best option for this type of weather.
