Hot day today, ahead of cold rain

Sunny and hot is the prediction for today — and that's the last time we'll be able to say that for a while.

Environment Canada is calling for mainly sunny skies all day, with a high of 29ºC this afternoon.

Clear skies remain tonight, as the temperature stays in the teens, with a low of 14ºC.

Tomorrow is when the weather begins to take a turn for the cool. Oh, it'll start out alright, with sun in the morning, and a warm afternoon high of about 26ºC, but that'll come with increasing cloudiness and showers later in the day, along with the risk of a thunderstorm.

Southerly winds will pick up tomorrow early in the afternoon, at 20 km/h, but they won't be bringing much heat.

After tomorrow, the forecast looks dreary. Thursday will see periods of rain and a high of 24ºC, followed by clouds on Friday and chance of showers. The Friday high will be just 19ºC.

And that looks good compared to the weekend. A mix of sun and cloud on both Sautrday and Sunday, but it'll feel downright like autumn, with a high of 17ºC on Saturday and 16ºC on Sunday.

Into Monday, the current outlook calls for a mix of sun and cloud and a high of 18ºC.

The normal high for this time of year is 24ºC; the normal low is 11ºC.

The warmest it's ever been recorded on an Aug. 19 here is 35.2ºC, in 1986. The coldest ever was in 1950, at just 1.1ºC.
