A subtle weather system will move through this morning but precipitation will be hard to come by.

Skies will be rather cloudy this morning, but a few glimpses of sunshine are not out of the question. A spit of rain or snow cannot be ruled out, either.

A more noticeable marker of the passage of this system will be the wind. Ahead of the system, winds will be light and southerly. By the late morning or early afternoon, however, winds will turn to the west and increase.

Wind speeds will be 10-15 mph and gusts of 30-40 mph. These winds will persist into the late afternoon before weakening and turning to the northwest as the sun sets.

During the afternoon, sunshine will be more plentiful, though patches of clouds will also drift through from time to time.

High temperatures will make their way to around 40 degrees but could be a bit warmer if enough sunshine comes out. Regardless, with the wind, it will feel cooler than it is.

A stray flurry or narrow snow band off Lake Ontario cannot be ruled out tonight, but for the most part, it will be dry and partly cloudy. Clouds will increase and thicken well after midnight.

Temperatures will fall back into the mid 20s this evening and the mid 10s overnight.

Here is a look at the weather for the next few days:

Monday: Evening snow or mixed precipitation. Morning lows in the mid 10s. Afternoon highs in the mid to upper 30s.

Tuesday: Morning snow tapers off. Morning lows in the mid 20s. Afternoon highs in the mid 30s.

Wednesday: Mostly cloudy with a few late rain and snow showers. Morning lows in the upper 10s. Afternoon highs in the low 40s.

Thursday: Rain showers. Morning lows in the mid 30s. Afternoon highs in the low 40s.
