Weather In Ontario Is Getting Hotter & Toronto Broke Heat A Record

Don't forget your sunscreen, Toronto! The weather in Ontario continues to heat up, with some spots reporting record-breaking temperatures and even potentially risky conditions.

Ahead of the weekend, Environment Canada began issuing heat warnings for regions across Southern Ontario and beyond, predicting that daytime highs could reach a blistering 32 C.

The experts were pretty spot on, as conditions became so stifling that Toronto broke its own heat temperature record for June 5. On Saturday, temperatures in Toronto reached a sweltering 31 C, which is hotter than the previous record of 30 C set in 1940.

These toasty conditions aren't going anywhere, either. According to the federal weather agency, this "heat event" could continue into next week, with overnight temperatures hovering around 20 degrees.

As part of its multi-day heat warning, Environment Canada urges Ontarians in hot areas to be cautious when outdoors in warm weather and to drink plenty of water.

Earlier in June, The Weather Network dropped its official forecast for summer 2021, with experts predicting that the whole country is in for above-normal temperatures and loads of super-sunny days.
