Temperatures are set to rise into the middle-to-upper single digits closer to the end of this week in Mississauga, Brampton and much of southern Ontario.

Although there were clear and sunny skies this past Friday (Feb. 3), temperatures as low as -30 degrees Celsius forced residents to be cautious when going outside and wear the necessary layers to avoid the risk of frostbite.

While above-seasonal temperatures are expected for the next little while, it does come with a catch.

The sudden warm up will bring gloomy winter conditions.

According to Environment Canada, Sunday (Feb. 5) evening will end off with a 30 percent chance of flurries with the potential of turning into freezing rain overnight. Winds of up to 40 km/h gusts are expected before dying down later in the evening.

Monday morning will bring sunshine with a mix of clouds and that will continue throughout the remainder of the week. Temperatures will stay steady at -2 C until Wednesday and Thursday, where a high of plus 3 is expected with a possibility of rain.

Friday evening will see a 40 percent chance of showers or flurries, and temperatures will dip down to -9 C.
