If you spent last weekend cleaning up the backyard and opening up the pool, then this is the weekend to sit back and enjoy all your hard work.

There’s a high of 31 C in Friday’s forecast and a hot weekend ahead. Humidex values are expected to be in the low 40s.

While it will likely rain over the next three days, Toronto could potentially break a weather record.
