It's a cruel summer: Two-day heat warning in effect for Toronto

Jun 21 2022, 4:03 pm

Hot weather is about to descend on Toronto, bringing with it two days of sticky humidity and temperatures that could reach the mid-30s.

Environment Canada issued the alert on June 21 at 9:56 am for the City of Toronto. The weather agency also warns that the humid air can “also bring deteriorating air quality.”

According to The Weather Network’s 36-hour forecast, Tuesday afternoon could see a high of 33Ā°C, which could actually feel a lot more like a sweltering 39Ā°C.

Thankfully, temperatures are expected to drop to a low of 19Ā°C on Tuesday evening but prepare for some soupy air when humidity is expected to jump to 83%.

Unfortunately, Wednesday isn’t looking much better.

Tomorrow’s commute isn’t looking great with a risk of a thunderstorm on Wednesday morning and afternoon and a possible high of 29Ā°C that could feel closer to 38Ā°C.

Thursday should bring some relief with sunny skies and a high of 25Ā°C.

According to Environment Canada, the average high at this time of the year is 24.5Ā°C. However, the highest recorded temperature on June 21 was in 2012 at 34.4Ā°C but let’s hope not to break that record. The lowest was 3.3Ā°C in 1969.

The agency also warns that the risks associated with extreme heat are “greater for young children, pregnant women, older adults, people with chronic illnesses and people working or exercising outdoors.” And, as always, do not leave people or pets inside a parked vehicle.

Stay cool, Toronto.
