Tuesday, July 28th 2020, 7:35 pm - Seasonally hot for southern Ontario, though the closing days of July will feature the occasional storm risk.
Ontario continues to see seasonally hot temperatures on Wednesday, but there is a chance of storm activity across the eastern and western borders. Storm risks include heavy downpours, strong winds, and possibly strong gusts. A more detailed look, below.
- Widespread risk Wednesday, severe chance in the east and west
- Western areas could see storms starting at 2pm
- Seasonal temperatures through the weekend
- Keep an eye on weather ALERTS in your area
WEDNESDAY AND BEYOND: UNSETTLED WEATHER, SEASONAL TEMPERATURES ENDURE
The storm risks start around noon around Ottawa. Southern Ontario gets to see some possible storm action around 2 - 4pm, as the daytime heats kicks in. Areas that could see some severe storms are around Windsor, London and into Niagara. Ottawa doesn't get a break from those risks, as they could see storms continue in the afternoon through the evening.
Any storms that do fire up will feature heavy downpours, strong winds, and possibly strong gusts.
The trigger will be a cold front sinking southward, and though the risk looks non-severe, the atmospheric setup is such that parts of eastern Ontario and cottage country have a chance of an isolated storm or two.
With somewhat unsettled conditions for the rest of the week, there may be further chances for at least a few showers as we head to the weekend.
Temperature-wise, seasonal conditions look set to continue, at least through to the weekend. Wednesday features widespread daytime highs in the mid-to-high 20s, with the humidex in the mid-30s ... not cool by any means, but not uncomfortably hot.
