The intense humidity is gone, leaving behind seasonal temperatures -- and a couple of days of limited storm risk

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.


WEATHER HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Daytime highs in the 20s, feeling like 30 in many places Tuesday

  • Some potential storms for areas along the lakeside Tuesday

  • More seasonal temperatures for most of the rest of the week

  • Keep an eye on weather ALERTS in your area


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.

Tuesday heat Ontario

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.
