Just when we thought we were in the clear and the warm weather was finally here to stay, another cold day has hit Southern Ontario. While many of you were probably wishing for some sunshine to celebrate Mother's Day, rain and even wet snow is in the forecast for Southern Ontario. So make sure to bundle up and stay dry if you're heading out today. 

The Weather Network is calling for some pretty gloomy weather throughout the day. No matter where you are in southern Ontario, you can expect a cloudy and chilly day with temperatures falling into the single digits. Rain is also expected for the afternoon through a majority of the southern area. 

While we're heading into mid-May, the weather today actually feels like it's pushing us back into those cold March days. Shockingly, it's not just rain that is in the forecast. In some parts of southern Ontario, the Weather Network is even calling for wet snow.   

That's right. If you're in the Orangeville area, you can expect to see some wet flurries throughout the late afternoon as some of the rainfall actually turns into snow.

However, for most of southern Ontario, these cold rains and even snow flurries aren't expected to start until later in the afternoon, so you still have some time to get out and enjoy the cool day, minus the snow and rain. 

To make matters even worse, if you thought you were going to start your Monday with some sunshine, you might want to think again. It's not just today that these cold conditions are plaguing the province. The Weather Network also calls for a gloomy Monday as well. 

The GTA can expect temperatures as low as 5°C on Monday with cold rain continuing throughout the day. Those who are commuting can expect some slick roads throughout the day. 

However, it's not all doom and gloom. There are some slight risks for showers on Tuesday, but the weather is looking up. Some sunshine is expected on Tuesday, with a high of 13°C throughout the Greater Toronto area. 

The cool weather is expected to end as the week goes on, and by Wednesday normal May temperatures will be returning, with Toronto expecting to see highs of 18°C.
