Published June 1, 2022 at 1:37 pm
Niagara Region has received a “severe thunderstorm alert” for tonight (June 1) as temperatures are set to drop both now and throughout the weekend.
As opposed to the Hamilton-Halton areas, however, so far Environment Canada hasn’t issued a high wind warning for the Niagara area.
“Showers with risk of a thunderstorm. High 26 with temperature falling to 19 this afternoon. Humidex 32. UV index 4 or moderate. Cloudy with 60 per cent chance of showers early this evening and risk of a thunderstorm. Clearing near midnight. Low 12.,” said the weather service.
However, on the plus side, the storm will break the heat that reached a very sticky and humid 30C yesterday in the region.
Tomorrow (June 2) is slated to be cloudy with a chance of showers but will only reach a high of 23C. A sunny Friday (June 3) will see the temperature edge up to 25C before dropping quickly to 19C on Saturday and 22C on Sunday. The entire weekend calls for sun and no cloudy periods.
