Winter weather is set to return tonight following a weekend of warmth.

Environment Canada says a sharp Arctic cold front will sweep across Ontario this afternoon, causing temperatures to plunge and bringing wind gusts up to 85 km/h into the area.

“This will herald an end to the first taste of almost summerlike weather across the regions,” says Environment Canada.

The change in weather will begin as showers this afternoon that will then transition into a risk of freezing rain, ice pellets, and snow.

Temperatures are expected to plunge quite dramatically as a result, with values dropping to near freezing or a bit below by Tuesday morning.

Environment Canada says showers will begin to change over to a few centimetres of snow from Lake St. Clair northward tonight. There will be enough snow to whiten the ground in many areas.

Temperatures will be sharply colder on Tuesday with afternoon values expected to be near or below freezing.

Temperatures are expected to be back up closer to normal by the end of the week.
