Torontonians Should Prepare For More Thunderstorms And Extreme Heat For The Last Week Of August
The last week of the summer is going to be a hot one in Toronto with a slight risk of thunderstorms.
Looks like the week before back to school is going to be a scorcher for those of us who live in the city. But just because it's warm doesn't mean it's going to be dry.
Environment Canda has issued a heat warning for Toronto as of Sunday for the beginning of the week. Temperatures are expected to climb with a high amount of humidity, meaning the last week of summer will be a hot one.
A hot and humid airmass is moving into the city as of Monday, said Environment Canada in a release, and is expected to linger in the city until Wednesday. That means this will be an exceptionally warm beginning of the week.
Monday and Tuesday are expected to have temperatures hitting the mid 30-degree Celsius range, with the humidex making it feel like 40-degrees. Wednesday will continue to be hot, with a high of 29-degrees Celsius and humidex reaching the high 30's.
Not only are the temperatures expected to climb, the risk of thunderstorms is also on the rise as well. Monday through Wednesday, The Weather Network is stating that there is a 40% chance for more rain on the way.
While Torontonians are sick of the gloomy weather, the rain is only supposed to be between one and three millimetres a day. That means at least if there are storms they will be very brief and not as wet!
It's important to remember that high temperatures can be dangerous for people in vulnerable situations, as well as to pets or people left in hot cars. Remain hydrated and rested so you stay safe during the heat.
