The Sault region is about to see a big change in the weather patterns this week that will usher in hot and humid conditions by the end of the workweek. This will be the first time since mid-September of last year that we will see temperatures climb above 25°C for several days in a row. As schools break for the summer this week, we can finally put away those jackets and head to the beach.
We will see scattered showers on and off through Monday with even a little sun as temperatures settle in near 18°C. Thunderstorms arrive in the evening after sunset and continue overnight.
The thunderstorms come to an end Tuesday morning and will be replaced with scattered showers for the rest of the day. There remains the risk of an isolated thunderstorm in the afternoon. Daytime highs will be near 22°C with westerly winds in the afternoon.
Wednesday may see morning clouds with afternoon sunshine, but the northwest winds will keep temperatures near 21°C.
The heat arrives Thursday under sunny skies with daytime highs near 26°C, but the humidity will make it feel more like 30°C.
The sunshine continues on Friday, and some locations might even reach 30°C. High humidity will again bring hot and sticky conditions, and it will feel closer to 40°C!
The hot and humid conditions continue into the Canada Day Long Weekend.
