Starting Tuesday and looking consistent throughout the week, it looks like we're going to get a break from the sweltering summer heat and humidity. Ontario is going to cool down with temperatures in the higher-20s. Humidex values are still significant, making it feel in the 30s, but that is on-trend seasonally. A closer look, below.

TUESDAY: A BREAK FROM EXTREME HUMIDITY
The last few days have been unbearably hot, and starting Tuesday, it looks like Ontario is in for a break. Temperatures from the past few days felt like they were in the 40s, so it'll be a nice break as the humidex only bumps us up into the 30s.
As the heat subsides a bit, so do the risks of thundershowers. There are only a few areas along the lakeside who could see some scattered showers. Mostly north of the GTA into London and Niagara Falls.
Overall, Tuesday seems to kick-off a week of seasonal temperatures.
BEYOND: HUMIDITY SUBSIDES, TEMPERATURES RETURN TO SEASONAL
There is the occasional risk of showers and thunderstorms throughout the week, but mostly we're looking at a sunny week ahead. There's an upper low that will continue to give us that humidity break.
