After two days of sweltering heat, Ontario is expected to get some cooler air on Wednesday. The scorching temperatures reached in Toronto broke a 78-year-old record for heat. Rain is expected across most of the southern half of the province on Wednesdays and temperatures are forecasted to drop to the mid-twenties.
On Monday and Tuesday, nearly half of southern Ontario was under a special weather statement due to heat. The head of the Intact Centre on Climate Adaptation at the University of Waterloo, Blair Feltmate said we can expect heat records to be exceeded on a regular basis and earlier in the year.
According to Environment Canada, temperatures reached 32.1 C at Toronto’s Pearson International Airport Tuesday afternoon. This broke the previous record of 31.1 C on May 31, 1944.
