While it’s only Monday, the Canada Day weekend is just around the corner.

And like most long weekends, Torontonians hope for sunshine and warmth. Luckily this time, the weather actually delivers.

The first weekend of summer was rainy and felt more like spring, but the Canada Day weekend is about to bring the heat.

According to the Weather Network, temperatures will begin the steady climb as we head into late week, and “we could be in for a scorcher of a long weekend.”

They are describing the weekend as “sunny, hot, and very humid,” with daytime highs climbing into the low to mid-30s with the humidex well into the 40s.

And the weather continues to be hot for the entire long weekend.

“The very hot and humid weather will continue for Monday, but we will also have an increasing threat for scattered thunderstorms during the afternoon and evening,” said Weather Network meteorologist Dr. Doug Gillham. “However, it is too early to have confidence in the details of the timing of any storms and how this might impact fireworks etc.”

As well, the forecast calls for an extended period of hot weather that will continue through the first week of July and possibly into the second week.

“This will likely turn out to be our most extended heat wave of the summer,” Gillham said.

Get ready for the Canada Day weekend, Toronto!
