Grey forecast for next few days

This is not a weekend for camping or swimming. Indeed, if you'd planned to make a trip to the lake this weekend, you might be looking at curling up with a book inside as rain falls for the next four or five days.

Environment Canada says that things will be pretty gloomy until at least Tuesday.

Today will see morning showers that end around noon, then cloudy with a chance of continuing showers and the risk of a thunderstorm. All told, about 10-15 mm of rain is expected. Northerly winds will pick up this afternoon, at 30 km/h. The afternoon high will be just 20ºC.

Clouds and possible showers — including potential storms — continue this evening, although the winds will drop off. Temperatures will fall to a low of 14ºC.

Cloudy skies continue tomorrow, with temperatures steady near 17ºC. Skies will clear briefly late in the evening.

But Saturday will be cloudy again, with a 30 per cent chance of showers through the day, and a high of just 17ºC.

Sunday will see showers, with a high of 15ºC, followed by cloud on Monday and even more possible showers. The high on Monday again will be 15ºC.

Tuesday, finally, will see a mix of sun and cloud, as temperatures begin to turn the corner. Tuesday the high should be 17ºC.

Wednesday, at this point, looks like it will be sunny, with a high of 21ºC.

The normal high for this time of year is 23ºC; the normal low is 11ºC.

The hottest it's ever been on an Aug. 21 was in 1969, when it was 34.4ºC. The coldest ever was in 1986, when it was 2.2ºC.
