LONDON, ONT. -- A frost advisory continues, as temperatures will once again drop close to freezing mark early Thursday.

Areas near the lakeshore and in the city will likely remain mild enough to avoid frost.

But a pattern shift is underway, with sunshine in the forecast and milder temperatures.

It is expected to be mainly sunny Thursday and the dry pattern will continue right through the weekend.

Daytime highs are set to jump back to seasonal and above this weekend.
