Is the rain ever going to stop? Not for now. Toronto’s summer weather is bringing thunderstorms and heavy rainfall all day Tuesday.

According to The Weather Network, a stream of “atmospheric moisture” originating from the Gulf of Mexico is making the province feel sticky and humid.

Though temperatures remain below 30°C, it’ll actually feel about five to 10°C hotter throughout southern Ontario.

And with that comes the higher risk of thunderstorms.
