TORONTO - It's early December but parts of southern Ontario are enjoying some warm temperatures -- at least for today.
On Tuesday morning, the mercury climbed to 16 degrees in Toronto, unofficially breaking the all-time high for Dec. 4 of 15.9 Celsius that was set in 1998.
But Environment Canada says the mild weather won't last.
The temperature is expected to drop this afternoon and overnight with Wednesday's high only reaching the three-degree mark.
It's a different story in northern Ontario where there's a blowing snow warning for Fort Severn, and a winter storm warning for Webequie and Peawanuck.
Forecasters say conditions in the North will gradually improve as the system moves into Quebec, but not before some areas receive snowfall amounts of up to 40 centimetres.
