Warm today, cooler over the weekend

How do you know spring and summer is finally coming? Because the forecast calls for cooler temperatures over the weekend.

Environment Canada says today will be a nearly average spring day for this time of year, with mainly sunny skies though the day, a bit of northwest wind at 30 km/h and a high of 14ºC.

Increasingly cloudiness late this afternoon heralds a 60 per cent chance of showers this evening, with the risk of a thunderstorm, but skies should clear again around midnight as temperatures drop to -1ºC before tomorrow morning.

The weekend will be a fair bit cooler, with a high of 7ºC tomorrow, despite skies that will be a mix of sun and cloud. Winds are expected to be a little lighter than today, reaching 20 km/h.

Sunday will be sunny, with a high of 8ºC.

Temperatures warm up a bit into next week, with a mix of sun and cloud on Monday and a high of 10ºC.

Tuesday and Wednesday, however, will be cloudy, with a good chance of showers on Tuesday, and highs of around 10–11ºC both days.

At this point, the Thursday forecast predicts a mix of sun and cloud on Thursday, along with a high of 12ºC.

The normal high for this time of year is 16ºC, the normal low is 3ºC.

The warmest it's ever been on this date was in 1980, when it touched 29.4ºC. The coldest ever was in 2002, when it dropped to -9.7ºC.
