Sunday felt a lot like spring in Windsor with temperatures reaching yet another single-day record high.

Thermometer readings at Windsor International Airport peaked at 15.6 C, according to Environment Canada. That's several degrees higher than the previous record for Feb. 28 set back in 1976 when temperatures reached 12.2 C.

Windsor and much of southern Ontario has set several weather records this winter. But cooler temperatures are expected to return to normal in the coming days.

Monday's high will reach 7 C, while the rest of the week will be even colder with temperatures staying below freezing.

Environment Canada also issued a special weather alert because of a potentially significant snow storm expected to hit the region as early as Tuesday.
