It's not time to break out the shorts quite yet.
 
Mother Nature gave us a short tease of spring, but the Easter weekend is looking chilly.
 
"We've got a fairly significant outbreak of Arctic air coming down later on this week," said Environment Canada meteorologist, Brian Proctor. "We really start to cool off on Wednesday (Mar.28)."
 
The coldest point is expected on Good Friday with temperatures around -19 C.
 
Snow will also fall this week, with around 3-5 cm possible for the Fort.
