Hot Night!

Outside worker in Toronto cools down, 21 July 2011 (CTV)

Several cities in southern Ontario recorded their hottest nights ever as temperatures remained warm through today’s early morning hours.

Toronto, for example, fell overnight to a sticky 26.6 C, while the previous record for the hottest night came on Aug. 1, 2006, when the lowest overnight temperature was 26.3 C.

A hot, stationary high pressure area is creating a heat dome effect over central parts of Canada, pushing the jet stream well to the north, and keeping cooler or wetter weather away.

Environment Canada is forecasting highs of 34 C for Montreal and Ottawa, 38 C for Toronto and 39 C for Windsor, ON, which with the humidex will feel closer to 50 C.
