Calgary to see freezing temperatures this week... while Toronto is in a heat wave

Sep 23 2017, 5:16 am

While it may not warm up your fingers and toes to know it, do keep in mind that it’s not all rainbows and sunshine in the warmer parts of the country, either.

Well, there’s definitely sunshine – but maybe a bit too much of it.

Toronto has just found itself with a heat wave warning for the first day of fall, with temperatures reaching highs of over 30°C, but feeling like 38°C.

Environment Canada

The muggy humidity is trapping the heat in, and though summer has come and gone, the warm, sweaty weather has stuck around.

Environment Canada is warning people not to leave children or pets (or anyone, for that matter) in hot cars, and to stay in the shade or in air conditioned buildings when possible.

Meanwhile, Calgary is set to see freezing temperatures this weekend – though Sunday will be shining bright with a high of 15°C.

So if you find yourself complaining about missing summer, or wishing you could be walking out of the house in nothing but shorts and a t-shirt, just remember that with great warmth comes great sweat stains – even if it is an autumn sun.
