Hot, breezy day but showers headed this way

Lather on the sunscreen and hang onto your hat if you’re planning on spending time outdoors today.

Not only is the temperature expected to soar to 30 C this afternoon — well above the normal high of 22 C for this time of year — but the wind will be gusting out of the south at 40 to 60 km/h for much of the afternoon and evening, Environment Canada says.

With all of that wind, the clouds are expected to start rolling in this evening, bringing showers and thunderstorms to the region after midnight. The temperature will also drop back down to a low of 16 C overnight.

The showers and thunderstorms are expected to stick around for part of the morning Friday, before the sky clears and the temperature climbs back up to a comfortable 24 C in the afternoon.

The weekend also looks pretty good, with lots of sun both days and daytime highs of 24 C on Saturday and 21 C on Sunday.

At this point it’s also looks like more of the same for the first half of next week, with mainly sunny conditions and daytime highs of between 23 C and 26 C through to Wednesday.
