You might not want to put away your winter jackets just yet. Toronto's weather forecast just shattered records for unseasonably cold temperatures this month. According to Environment Canada, this May 12 was the coldest in recorded history.  

If you thought it was chilly when you stepped outside this morning, you were right. 

On Tuesday morning, a record-breaking -3 C was recorded at Toronto Pearson Airport. 

The last time that Torontonians have felt temperatures this cold on May 12 was during the Great Depression back in 1939 when Environment Canada recorded a frigid -2.2 C. 

However, it wasn't just record-breaking cold that residents were dealing with this morning.

Environment Canada has also issued a Frost Advisory for much of southern Ontario. A cold air mass has settled into the region and will persist into the week.

While temperatures started off in the negatives this morning, currently, it is 4 C in Toronto with a forecasted high of 8 C. 

These unseasonable temperatures aren't just bad luck. The Weather Network warned that a polar vortex is sweeping through the province.

This vortex is bringing record-breaking snow and glacial temperatures throughout Ontario.  

Luckily, Torontonians are expected to feel some sunshine in the upcoming days. 

Temperatures are expected to get closer to the 20s by the weekend, according to The Weather Network.

Wednesday will be the last night of the week where temperatures stay around 0 C. 

By Friday, temperatures will be around 18 C, with temperatures floating around 20 C well into next week. 

Although, it won't be all sunshine as some rain is being predicted this weekend.  

The rest of spring is looking up. The Weather Network predicts that "temperatures will be noticeably warmer than the previous two springs."
