After a torrential downpour that flooded streets and knocked down power lines across the city Wednesday evening, Mother Nature is trying to make it up to Toronto with a beautiful day on Thursday.
Environment Canada is forecasting sunny skies for all of today with nary a cloud in sight until the late evening. Temperatures will rise from the high teens in the morning to the mid-20s by the early afternoon, with a high of 25 C (27 with Humidex) in the evening. There’s a high UV index (8) to go along with the sunshine, so probably a good idea to bring some sunscreen if you’re planning on taking advantage of the rays.
And looks like most of the damage caused by Wednesday’s severe weather has been resolved too – nearly all Toronto Hydro customers had their power restored by Thursday morning and public transit was running with no problems (related to weather, anyway) either.
Mother Nature’s reconciliation won’t last long though – there’s a 60 per cent chance of more rain and thunderstorms come Friday, so make the most of today before we all get drenched again.
