Like last weekend's weather? There's more where that came from

A weather system that brought a gloomy weekend to Toronto will hang around for the foreseeable future, promising little relief from rain and cloud.
For today, Environment Canada expects a high of 10 C and low of 7 C, along with winds of about 30 km/h. Seasonal highs for this time of year are typically around 20 C.
Since Friday, we've had a total of 50 mm -- and 53 hours of either rain, fog or drizzle, according to David Phillips, senior climatologist at Environment Canada.
We’ve only have 80 hours of sunshine this month, barely two-thirds of what's typical for a May. April, in contrast, was much more pleasant, with 126 hours of sunshine.
Phillips said a weather system has simply stalled over southern Ontario, keeping the clouds hanging around for the foreseeable future
There is a brighter note, however: temperatures are expected to steadily increase throughout the week, with sunshine in the forecast for the Saturday of the long weekend.
