Getting hot, with storms later

Hot and humid is the forecast today — and that spells thunderstorms.

Environment Canada is calling for a high of 28 C this afternoon, although skies will be mainly cloudy all day. Relatively high humidity could push the Humidex as high as the mid-30s. A few thunderstorms will begin late this afternoon, with the risk that some of them turn severe.

Storms will continue into the evening, although they should tail off after midnight, as temperatures stay pretty warm, with an overnight low of 16 C.

Wednesday should see a mix of sun and cloudy, with a 60 per cent change of showers later in the afternoon and in the evening — again, with the risk of a thunderstorm. Despite that, temperatures should again reach 28 C tomorrow.

The string of heat will continue Thursday, when temperatures are expected to hit 28 C once again — but this time, with sunny skies.

Friday, unfortunately, will see clouds again, with a good chance of some showers.

However, at this point, the Canada Day long weekend is shaping up pretty nicely. Mostly sunny skies are expected all three days, with highs in the mid- to upper 20s.

A year ago today, it dawned cloudy and cool, at 7.9 C, but warmed up to an afternoon high of 27.3 C as skies cleared after noon.

The hottest it's ever been on this date was in 1964, when it hit 33.3 C. The coldest ever was recorded back in 1958, at 3.3 C.

The normal high for this time of year is 24 C; the normal low is 12 C.
