Wednesday, July 9, 2014, 10:25 AM - Overall, weekends across southern Ontario since Victoria Day have featured a lot of great weather, though there certainly have been some interruptions. 

The upcoming weekend will be more unsettled, but it will not be a total washout either. In fact, most of Saturday will be rain-free across the GTA.

Friday looks like the nicest day of the week across Southern Ontario.  After the cool weather on Wednesday and Thursday, temperatures will return to near seasonal for Friday afternoon with abundant sunshine and comfortable humidity.

Saturday will feel more like what we expect during mid-July as both the temperature and humidity will be on the increase during the day. 

High temperatures will reach the upper 20s in the GTA and the mid 20s across cottage country. The threat for scattered showers & thunderstorms will increase during the afternoon & evening across parts of cottage country, but the threat for storms in the GTA should hold off until later in the evening or overnight.

Sunday will be a more unsettled day across southern Ontario with rain and thunderstorms likely. However, it does not look like the day will be a total washout as there should be rain-free periods as well. 

The timing for storms that cross the region will be fine-tuned as we get closer to the weekend.

The threat for rain and thunderstorms will continue into Monday and Tuesday as a strong cold front crosses through the Great Lakes region. This will mark the transition to several days of below seasonal temperatures. 

High temperatures in the GTA will be near 20 with the upper teens expected for cottage country.  Fortunately, temperatures will start to recover to near seasonal as we head towards the following weekend.
