Environment Canada says Monday’s high was a record-breaking one.
Following a three day heat warning, the mercury rose to 32.0C on August 17th in Toronto beating out 31.6C set in 1998.
Meteorologist Geoff Coulson says the warning is expected to be lifted by Tuesday morning, however, its daytime high will still be a hot one.
“It’s still going to get up to a high of 29 on Tuesday, still going to be very humid, going to feel more like the mid-30’s,” Coulson explains. He says Wednesday will also feel more of the same.
However, come Thursday, it’s all expected to change.
“The real transition day that brings in a cooler and drier brand of air is going to be on Thursday, that’s when a cold front is going to come through, going to kick off a series of showers and thunderstorms,” Coulson continues.
He says after Friday though, it will return to drier, sunny, more comfortable summer temperatures.
