The warmer weather is expected to stick around, and residents are rejoicing.

Some of the weather’s highlights throughout the week include a high of plus 5 today and Friday’s forecast is calling for a high of plus 1.

Environment Canada Meteorologist Geoff Coulson detailed the upcoming forecast.

“I think it should be fairly pleasant. Certainly for this time of year with the type of temperatures that we normally expect. It looks like we’re going to be seeing values that are more mild than usual. Normal daytime highs for the area should be about minus 1, overnight lows around minus 7. We could be seeing daytime highs of about plus 4. Further on into the month of November, we should return to more seasonal temperatures, potentially even cooler than usual temperatures,” he said.

As much as the warm weather is expected to stay, it’s not all good news. Flurries can be expected throughout the week.
