Good morning GTA, and welcome to a new work week.

Hang in there, it's almost the holidays.

Most of the snow that fell during last Thursday's snowstorm bid farewell as temperatures rose firmly above freezing over the weekend.

Temperatures are expected to reach about 4 C today, with the possibility of drizzle starting later this afternoon.

It might be smart to plan ahead for your evening commute, as wet conditions could create headaches on highways and in the city.
