Wednesday, July 2, 2014, 12:08 PM - The last weekend of June, which was an extended long weekend for many, ended up being extremely hot across much of southern Ontario.

Daytime highs near the 30 degree mark felt even warmer with a humidex near 40 in several places.

If the heat and humidity isn't your thing, this upcoming weekend could be the best weather yet so far this summer.

"We've had a lot of nice weather over the past few weekends, but this weekend will have it all," says Weather Network meteorologist Doug Gillham. "Low humidity, lots of sunshine and comfortable temperatures from start to finish."

Much more bearable conditions for outdoor activities and an opportunity to turn the air conditioning down.

"We're actually going to be a bit below seasonal for the next couple of days," Gillham says. "All the sunshine however, is going to feel great with humidex values at or below 30. Great sleeping weather."

Stormy east coast

Unfortunately, the same can't be said for parts of Atlantic Canada as they brace for potential impact from Tropical Storm Arthur.

"It will have become a hurricane and it will be weakening as it moves in Atlantic Canada later this week," says Gillham. "But very stormy weekend, especially for Nova Scotia and eventually into Newfoundland."
