Summer temperatures return to Toronto this week

Welcome to mid-October in Toronto, a time filled with dark skies, but red hot temperatures. Even though it felt cooler last week, the hot, humid summer '16 weather is forecast to return today and tomorrow.

According to Environment Canada, it's supposed to be 20 C today, but with the humidex, it'll feel more like 25 C. And tomorrow, temperatures are slated to hit 27 C, or 32 C with the humidex. It'll cool down later this week.

There's a chance of showers in the forecast for both today and tomorrow, which could prove a damper on the return of hot weather. But sometimes fall colours look their most majestic just after a rainfall, so there's still plenty of reason to indulge in some classic autumn activities, especially because you won't have to wear a sweater or a peacoat.

How will you take advantage of this summer weather? Let us know in the comments.
