Don't expect the balmy weather to last — a snowstorm is expected to hit Toronto and other areas of Southern Ontario on Tuesday.

Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement for the City of Toronto warning that a low-pressure system developing over southern U.S. on Monday will head to the Great Lakes, and is expected to bring snowfall to Southern Ontario on Tuesday.

The storm is expected to last throughout the evening, bringing "significant snowfall... across portions of Southwestern Ontario, the Golden Horseshoe and Eastern Ontario," Environment Canada said. "Travelling conditions could rapidly deteriorate."

The weather warning comes as Toronto experiences a sunny Sunday with a high of 13.8 C, making it the warmest Feb. 28 on record.
