Winds will also increase out of the northwest to 40 km/h gusting to 60 km/h this afternoon. Arctic air will also work its way into the system causing rain to change to snow later this evening over portions of the southeast where up to 5 centimetres is possible especially over grassy areas by late Monday morning. In behind this storm system, temperatures will be below normal throughout much of the week with not much recovery expected until the weekend.
