This weekend’s weather is a mixed bag including chances of thundershowers, lots of clouds, and yes, some sunshine.
As Dave Phillips, a senior climatologist with Environment Canada, says, “this weekend will not be a perfect 10, but it’s certainly a 7.5.”
Saturday brings with it a 30 per cent chance of showers and clouds are expected for the rest of the day.
Sounds dismal, but it’s great weather to take in a Bollywood flick. Phillips said the chance of showers “shouldn’t ruin any social engagements.”
Things will brighten up later in the day, though, as skies are expected to clear later in the evening.
Saturday’s high is forecast at 22C, with a UV index of 5, or moderate. Sunday is expected to be beautiful, though, with the sun finally making its much-awaited appearance.
The high Sunday is expected to be 26C. Not only that, it also looks like we’re in for a great week leading up to Canada day and the Pride parade.
“Nature’s saying ‘Okay, I’m going to start bringing you some nice weather and not ruin your weddings and picnics,” Phillips said.
“If the rest of the summer carries on like June, we’ll have nothing to complain about come Labour Day.”
So far June has been a degree warmer than usual, with an average temperature of 18.8C. June’s average is typically 17.8C.
