April 2, 2010 — The temperature is set to spike to a record-breaking 25 degrees this afternoon. So what better way to celebrate the summer-like weather than sitting outside and relaxing on a patio?
Sun and southerly winds are bringing beautiful weather to the province today and for the rest of the weekend. The long weekend will kick off with a high of 25 degrees in Toronto on Friday.
That's way above what it should be at this time of year, considering the normal temperature in the city is usually around 8 degrees.
“This is weather we'd generally be looking at in June or July. It's closer to the seasonal average for that time of year. It's definitely a little peek of summer,” Weather Network meteorologist Michelle Cassar says.
Even if you're in Northern Ontario today, you'll have your chance to enjoy a patio afternoon. Temperatures are set to skyrocket to the mid to high twenties! Sudbury, Timmins or Kapuskasing residents, get ready for a blast of heat because the thermometre will be hovering around 25 to 27 degrees!
And for those of you in Northwestern Ontario, the temperatures will be mild, but you're in for some serious rain. 30+ mm is expected for places like Kenora and Thunder Bay. It's all from that low pressure system that's moving north from the United States.
