Summer gets off the mat with blast of humidity
It should feel like the 30s again for most of the afternoon
The heat and humidity aren't ready to go away for fall just yet.
Today's humidity should make it feel like the low 30s from before noon until late afternoon under cloudy skies.
The forecasted peak is a humidex of 32. Yesterday's low in Ottawa was 3.2 C.
The true temperature high of 26 C wouldn't challenge the all-time Sept. 11 record of 31.7 C in Ottawa in 1961.
Thursday should be much nicer, with sunny skies and forecasted high in the low 20s for the start of CityFolk in Ottawa.
It could still rain on the canalside festival Friday and Saturday.
Elsewhere, the day may start out drizzly in Maniwaki, with a 60 per cent chance of afternoon showers.
The Kingston area has a 40 per cent chance of overnight and morning showers tonight.
