Chances of snow with rain in the weather forecast this week in Mississauga and Brampton

There were clear skies, ample sunshine, and temperatures above the mid-twenties last week—enough for spring and summer fans to believe those warm vibes were here to stay. However, residents of Mississauga and Brampton should brace themselves as the upcoming week calls for the return of rain, snow and cooler temperatures.

Last week felt like a mid-summer dream with the beautiful weather, as many residents engaged in outdoor activities including gardening, riding bikes, washing cars, and simply relaxing on their porch with a cold beverage.

Just when one thinks the wintry weather is over mother nature returns with a “fake-out” and is expected to deliver a mix of clouds, snow and rain starting this evening.

According to Environment Canada Sunday (Apr. 16) will be the warmest compared to the rest of the week as temperatures could reach 23 C with sunshine throughout the morning and afternoon.

It might be a good idea for residents to venture outdoors for that walk, or run those errands as temperatures are set to drop in the evening to 7 C with a 30 percent chance of showers closer to midnight.

Meteorologists predict windspeeds to also pick up to 50 km/h and a risk of a thunderstorm is on the cards for much of southern Ontario.

It will be a gloomy Monday with mostly cloudy weather throughout the day with temperatures sitting at 11 C and a high probability of showers or flurries by the evening.

The clouds will remain in the forecast for the greater part of Tuesday with a 30 percent chance of rain showers or flurries. Temperatures are expected to dip to minus -1 during the night.

With Wednesday on the horizon The Weather Network says that the sunshine will briefly return with temperatures hitting 12 C.

For the remainder of the week the sun will disappear with only clouds and rainfall in sight.

Thursday will be mostly cloudy throughout the morning and afternoon, and a good chance the evening could get rain.

Although temperatures will soar to 17 C on Friday, storm clouds will still be present with a 40 percent chance of rain showers.

For Saturday, the rain pattern continues with a high of 10 C.

Residents shouldn’t let the cool and wet weather dampen their spirits as the sunny weather could make a return on Sunday (Apr. 23)
