After a pleasant weekend, what's ahead for Ontario Monday?
Sunday, August 12, 2018, 6:33 AM - The past weekend had a good claim to be the rosiest in awhile for southern Ontario, with mostly seasonal temperatures, something of a break from the humidity, and a few scattered storms here and there.
We take a look at who runs the highest risk of showers and storms this weekend, and peek ahead into mid-August, below.
- After near-seasonal weekend, temperatures in the high 20s, reaching 30 for some people, for the earlier part of the new week
- Niagara likeliest to see some showers later Monday, some risk for the GTA as well.
- Humidity builds once again for the new week

UNSETTLED, HUMID WEATHER RETURNS NEXT WEEK
Though more temperate than the much of the rest of the summer so far, the past weekend did see some limited thunderstorm risk, though with few storms reaching the severe stage.
Monday is looking mostly dry, but with a chance of showers, mostly restricted to the Niagara region, though with some risk of a few drops for the GTA as well.
The track of an upper low will play a role in how the forecast for the early week shakes out, but one thing seems clear -- the weekend break from the humidity will prove short-lived as the new week unfolds.
"More humid and unsettled at times early next week, followed by a few days of cooler and less humid weather late next week," adds The Weather Network meteorologist Dr. Doug Gillham. "A couple models have a system tracking across the region late week, with significant rain (too early to have any confidence in this potential, but something to watch)."
