A risk of thunderstorms is expected on Friday, with cooler weather heading to Toronto for the weekend.

On Friday afternoon, Toronto will reach a high of 27°C, feeling warmer than the rest of the province due to the humidity.

However, while the weather is remaining “muggy” for one more day, an incoming cold front could “spark severe thunderstorms in parts of southern, central, and eastern Ontario,” the Weather Network said.

While the cold front will trigger thunderstorms in southern Ontario, the “severe potential” will be in areas north and south of the GTA.

“The main threats with any severe storms will be strong to damaging winds and torrential rain as moisture levels in the atmosphere are quite high,” according to the Weather Network.

In Toronto, the risk for thunderstorms will start at 11 am continuing until noon with a break from 1 to 2 pm for some sun and cloud.

Thunderstorms are then expected to resume again at 3 pm until around 5 pm, according to the network.

Rain and clouds are expected for the evening.

According to The Weather Network, Sunday looks even cooler, with Toronto feeling like 13°C.

Monday looks to be another cool day across the region, with Toronto feeling like 15°C and 16°C on Tuesday with rain expected.

But by mid-week, southern Ontario will be between hot and humid weather to the southwest.

Toronto’s temperatures will also rise with Wednesday feeling like 24°C, as Thursday and Friday feels like a comfortable 22°C with mostly sun and a bit of clouds and rain towards the end of the week.
