Now is the time to get outdoors and enjoy the recent warm weather. With sun and a high of minus 10 today, residents will be treated to warmer temperatures than what we're used to.

Environment Meteorologist Geoff Coulson says that the recent cold snap in the area is over, and the warm temperatures will continue over the next few days.

"At least for the next couple of days, we're going to see some temperatures on the mild side. Today, seasonal temperatures for the most part, but then we warm up to all the way of minus 2 on Tuesday. There is a system that could see some snow in the area, maybe between 5 to 10 centimetres. In the wake of that system though, things do start to get cold again for the end of the work-week and into the weekend. The good news, is this particular cold snap isn't expected to last that long. It does look like by mid-month we will bounce back again temperature-wise," he said.

Thursday is forecasted to be a high of minus 18, and Friday is set to hit a high of minus 17.
