Saturday, July 19, 2014, 10:11 AM - There's a showery weekend in store for Ontario, with a chance of thunderstorms in some areas.

But while it won't be as sunny as people would prefer for a July weekend, there's good news: those below seasonal temperatures will soon be a thing of the past.

"Temperatures continue to climb slowly back up to seasonal," Weather Network meteorologist Kelly Sonnenburg said Saturday morning. "By Monday and Tuesday, we should be feelikg like the mid-to-high 30s."

In the meantime, expect scattered showers through southern Ontario here and there on Saturday, lasting in some areas into Sunday morning.

"The showers start making their way into the Greater Toronto Area by the late morning, early afternoon, and linger throughout the day Saturday," Sonnenburg says.

Amounts won't be major, but people in the southwest and north of Lake Ontario should prepare for the chance of thunderstorms on Sunday.

"The GTA will see isolated showers, with a risk for thunderstorms through the London, Barrie and Ottawa area, along with cottage country," Sonnenburg says.

Northern Ontario, meanwhile, had showers and the occasional non-severe thunderstorm on Friday night, lasting into the morning, and storm risk returns Saturday.

"Northwestern Ontario has the risk of seeing non-severe thunderstorms this afternoon through the Thunder Bay area and north," Sonnenburg says.
