Those tired of recent winter-like temperatures will just have to wait a few days — warm weather is coming back to southern Ontario.

Environment and Climate Change Canada issued a frost advisory for Toronto and the Niagara area on Thursday.

Temperatures dropped to a low of -2 C on Thursday in Mississauga and Brampton, and to around -1.7 C in Halton Region and Hamilton.

And people woke up to a chilly 1 or 2 C this morning in much of southern Ontario. Durham Region saw temperatures drop to -3 C this morning.

All that is about to change, however, with much warmer temperatures expected on Sunday and a 25-degree temperature swing for Mississauga.

After a chilly start to the day, the weather will start to warm up to highs of 11 or 12 C. It is expected to be sunny for the day.

On Saturday, the sun will disappear but the temperature is expected to reach a high of 14 C. There is a chance of rain and thunderstorms in the forecast.

Sunday is when temperatures really heat up with highs of 23 C, according to Environment and Climate Change Canada.

The Weather Network is forecasting a high of 25 C, feeling like 31 C in Mississauga and similar temperatures in Hamilton.

Burlington is expected to be cooler, hitting a high of around 21 C on Sunday, according to the Weather Network.

The Oshawa will reach a high of 21 C on Sunday, according to Environment Canada.

The average temperature for this time of year is around 15 C.

If you are heading out, don’t forget your umbrella. Much of southern Ontario has a 40 per cent chance of rain on Sunday.
