Ontario’s Long Weekend Is Going To Be Cold, Wet & Stormy So Hold Off On Your Beach Trip

Early August is going to be cool so grab your sweater!

If you plan on basking in the scorching sun by the beach in Ontario this long weekend, you might want to rethink your holiday itinerary.

According to The Weather Network (TWN), there may be some sun to start off with this weekend, but a cold front will hit, with temperatures dropping into the teens for Monday throughout cottage country.

The weekend will kick off on Friday with temperatures in the lower 20s in Southern Ontario and temperatures in the teens north of the St. Lawrence and in cottage country due to northwest winds.

According to Dr. Doug Gillham, a meteorologist at TWN, "another cold front will approach and then cross the region with a period of rain and thunderstorms Saturday night and/or Sunday."

This pattern of "comfortable," cooler weather is set to continue into early August, according to TWN.
