It may not be record-breaking but the unusually warm weather across southern Ontario continues on the weekend.

Similar temperatures were felt in Hamilton, Halton Region and much of southern Ontario.
The record was also broken at Hamilton Munro International Airport, which was 10.4 C set in 1990 for Feb. 9.
The mild weather continues over the weekend but not quite as warm as Friday, according to the forecast from Environment and Climate Change Canada.
The skies should be mostly clear overnight and there will be a small, 30 per cent chance of showers in the morning.
The chance of showers continues through the day but in the afternoon mostly sunny skies are expected.
The high could get up to 11 C in Mississauga, Brampton, Halton Region and Hamilton.
The low could get down to a chilly but more seasonable -2 C or -8 C with the windchill in the evening.
The normal temperatures for this time of year should be around -2 C for the high and -10 C for the lows.insauga's Editorial Standards and Policies advertising
