Toronto's flip-flopping temperatures have been quite the topic of discussion this year, and it's a trend that seems to be continuing.

According to The Weather Network, the city will be hit by a burst of chilly Arctic air on Tuesday evening, causing temperatures to drop to around the freezing mark.

As a result, Environment Canada has issued a frost advisory for Toronto to warn residents of the incoming wintry weather.

"Some plants may be damaged or even destroyed by frost. Temperatures are forecast to fall to the freezing mark overnight, resulting in patchy frost," Environment Canada warns.

"Frost is expected Wednesday night into Thursday as well. Cover up plants, especially those in frost-prone areas. Take preventative measures to protect frost-sensitive plants and trees," it adds.

Unfortunately, the city won't rebound quickly to warmer weather, with the possibility of temperatures being up to 10 degrees below seasonal on Wednesday.

On the bright side, the 6ix will likely dodge the chance of flurries, which could fall in parts of southern Ontario, particularly regions along Georgian Bay and Lake Huron.

The forecast probably won't be shocking to residents. After all, Toronto's weather has been back and forth for a while now.

Rachel Modestino, a TWN meteorologist, reported that if Toronto doesn't hit 20 degrees by May 3, this year will be the latest that the city has hit the temperature since 1993.

So, in conclusion, it's been a weird spring. It looks like it will continue to be strange, and our best bet is to wait for summer.
