Weekend weather: Will the favourable summer-like conditions continue in southern Ontario this weekend?
Wednesday, June 4, 2014, 8:56 AM - Warm, seasonal and sunny conditions have dominated much of southern Ontario for the last few weekends.
"Victoria Day weekend was a little disappointing, but we've had quite a run here," says Weather Network meteorologist Doug Gillham. "Mother's Day and the last two weekends have been great, but can we do it again?"
Heat, humidity and thunderstorm activity have been the story across the region for much of this week, but as the front continues to slide south, improving conditions are expected.

"Wednesday will be noticeably drier and less humid and a system passing by to our south should just bring cloud cover to parts of the Greater Toronto Area," adds Gillham. "Then as we go through the rest of the week, lots of sunshine is likely and that will take us right through the weekend."
According to Gillham, a warming trend accompanied by more sunshine is expected to dominate much of the day Saturday.
"There's a challenge in the forecast as we get into Sunday," Gillham says. "In reality, it looks like showers and thunderstorms will be developing late in the day."
Gillham says the timing could change, with the rain either picking up late in the afternoon or holding off until the evening hours.
Changeable temperatures are expected as we move through the first half of June with periods of cool and below seasonal weather, followed by warmer temperatures possible.
