Environment Canada is calling for a high of 24 C Saturday, with no notable humidex. The average high for this part of September is around 18 C.

Overnight, expect just a few clouds and a low of 8 C, which is closer to the seasonal norm.

Sunny conditions are forecast to continue through most of next week, with highs in the low 20s Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. A few clouds could move in by week's end. Top Stories
