hot summer toronto

Last month was the hottest August ever in Toronto

If you sweated your way through August 2016, you probably weren't alone. That's because last month was the hottest August ever recorded in Toronto.

The estimated mean temperature was 24.4 C, beating out the previous record-holding August (1959), which had a mean temperature of 23.8 C. In fact, as City News reports, last month tied July 2011 for the title of hottest month ever recorded at YYZ.

Along with a steamy August, all summer felt pretty balmy and dry. While it's a bit cooler out today, the warm weather will likely continue next week. So even though you might start sipping on PSLs soon, don't put your shorts and sandals away just yet.
