If you’ve made outdoor plans this long weekend, the best days to enjoy the warm weather and sunshine would be Saturday and Sunday, as meteorologists predict a very rainy and much cooler Monday.

According to the Weather Network the weekend will bring temperatures in the high 30’s for Mississauga, Brampton, Hamilton, Halton and other parts of southern Ontario.

The UV index is expected to reach a 9 or very high, which means those venturing outdoors for extended periods should keep themselves hydrated and protected from the sun with clothing that is light and breathable.

However, Environment Canada anticipates a shift in weather as Monday approaches due to the low pressure in the atmosphere which could potentially trigger severe weather.

Although, the certainty of a thunderstorm is unknown at this time, meteorologists continue to monitor any changes to the weather and will post updates as the information becomes available to them.

The Weather Network is advising those who will be heading out to watch a fireworks show, to be prepared with an umbrella and a jacket in case it rains or temperatures drop.

Families who will be out camping are urged to keep their phones, radios  other communication devices charged in case of sudden weather alerts.
