While it may feel like a mild summer day in Toronto on Tuesday, enjoy it before the return of thunderstorms to the region.

According to The Weather Network, a midweek storm and humidity is expected on Wednesday for much of the area.

In fact, there is a risk of a severe thunderstorm possible for the Toronto area.

“The bigger risk for thunderstorms comes in the afternoon, however, as the system’s cold front is set to slice through, with the biggest risks being strong winds, heavy local downpours and small hail,” said the Weather Network.

The GTA is expected to see a system in the morning as well as the afternoon, “with a good break in between.”

The high in the city will be 27°C, but will feel more like 36°C.

And as the heat returns on Wednesday, it will continue for the next seven days.

“As an area of high pressure moves off from the province, it will clear the way for a surge of heat from the south, sending Ontario back into hotter conditions,” stated the Weather Network.

Thursday will see another risk of a thunderstorm in Toronto and a high of 28°C, but will feel like 34°C.

“By the weekend, the building humidity will make it feel like the mid-30s across the province, a little higher in the southwest,” said the Weather Network.

The hottest day over the weekend will be Sunday, when the humidex is going to reach 39°C.
