Good morning! Make sure to get outside and enjoy the spring-like conditions today.

As of 6 a.m., it was already 5 C in Toronto. Mainly cloudy skies are in the forecast today with a 40 per cent chance of showers this morning and a high of 13 C.

The cloudy skies will stick around this evening with an overnight low of 10 C.

Warm weather continues

If you think a high of 13 C is warm, there's even more relatively high temperatures in store for tomorrow. The expected daytime high for Wednesday is 16 C, which comes with a 70 per cent chance of showers.

Daytime highs are supposed to remain in the double-digits through at least Saturday.

According to Environment Canada, this kind of weather is likely to continue with the agency predicting milder temperatures for March, April and May right across the country.

"Certainly, the trend that we're seeing overall for the spring across the country is milder than normal," said Environment Canada meteorologist Geoff Coulson.
