The heatwave is over, but with the thermometer dropping, is this the end of summer?
Environment Canada meteorologist Alyssa Charbonneau says it’s a yes for the next week, and perhaps beyond that.
“Looking past that, we don’t really see a return immediately to any kind of really hot, big summer type ridges building back in. And we are getting in to the beginning of September, so it’s harder for us to have those really extended hot periods.”
“Sometimes we can have some really nice weather going into September, so I wouldn’t rule out completely that we might have some nice sunny days, but it looks like for the time being that yeah, this might be sort of the end of those really hot summer days.”
Charbonneau says to expect highs in the low 20s for the time being, with a chance of showers tonight and tomorrow.
Despite the break in temperatures, Charbonneau says we’re still likely to see some nice sunny September days.
But she says pack an umbrella this week with possible showers tonight and tomorrow.
