Here's when the temperature will hit 30 C in Ottawa over the Labour Day weekend

Sunshine ahead in Ottawa

It's going to be a sunny and hot final long weekend of summer and the start of the school year.

Environment Canada's forecast calls for mainly sunny skies over the next five days, with temperatures warming up to 31 C on Sunday and 32 C for the first day of school for most students on Tuesday.

The high of 32 C on Tuesday and 32 C on Wednesday will challenge the records for warmest Sept. 5 and Sept. 6 in Ottawa history.  The record for warmest Sept. 5 in Ottawa is 33.1 C set in 1983, while the hottest Sept. 6 is 31.7 C (1945).
