Parts Of Ontario Are About To Get Slammed With A Month's Worth Of Rain In Only 7 Days

There are a lot of things to be excited about next week, with the province moving into step two. However, Ontario's weather forecast just might ruin your plans.

According to the Weather Network , heavy rain and thunderstorms will wreak havoc on cottage country this week with "more than a month's worth of rain" expected to hit over the next seven days.

In fact, areas like Haliburton and Algonquin Park could be drenched by as much as 80-150 millimetres of rain over the next 10 days.

TWN predicts that Toronto will see rain starting tomorrow that will last all throughout the week until next Friday.

However, it's not all doom and gloom, as some sunshine is expected to make an appearance throughout the week.

"Of course this is disappointing news for those on vacation, however, there will also be periods of dry weather with sunshine and warm temperatures," Dr. Doug Gillham, TWN meteorologist, says. "So, it will not be as miserable as it may look if you just quickly glance at the weather icons in your forecast for the week."

Warm weather will return after Canada Day

According to TWN, warmer and drier weather will return to Ontario the week after Canada Day.

Saturday, July 3, and Sunday, July 4, are both set to be gorgeous days in Toronto, which will hopefully make up for all the rain.

Residents can expect to see temperatures reach around 25 to 26 degrees. However, with humidity, it will feel like a sizzling 31.

The warm weather will continue for the rest of that week, with a little bit of rain in the forecast for the following Tuesday.
