Last week featured predominantly cloudy, rainy, and cooler conditions, with Environment Canada issuing a severe thunderstorm warning over the weekend. The storm brought winds up to 100 km/h, torrential rain, and hail.

Today (June 30), the weather is expected to be mainly cloudy with a 30 per cent chance of drizzle. It will be slightly breezy across the region, with wind speeds picking up to 40 km/h. Daytime temperatures will reach 22 C.

The skies will remain cloudy by evening and will clear around midnight. Brisk winds will return at 40 km/h and are anticipated to calm by midnight.

Canada Day Monday promises clear skies and plenty of sunshine, with temperatures climbing to 25 C, ensuring a perfect day for outdoor activities.

The UV index is expected to be very high at level 8. Environment Canada advises protecting your skin when the UV index is three or higher, particularly between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.

Additionally, Health Canada says that if outdoors, individuals should seek shade, wear protective clothing and hats, apply SPF 30 or higher sunscreen, avoid tanning, use UV-protective sunglasses, and stay hydrated throughout the day.

As night falls, residents will see clear conditions with temperatures dipping 13 C, marking the coolest night of the week.
