-A high of 61-63 F, (16-17 C)

-Windy enough that even in the stillest places outdoors and calmest time of day you can still sense constant air movement.

-Less than 2 hours of sunlight (or no sunlight) for the entire day

-Either a "light overcast" (seems brightish) or a "dark" overcast

-Surprisingly, no precipitation

-An overnight low between 48-52 F (9-11 C); the clouds and constant wind help keep the diurnal range low.

-Combining the daytime high with overnight low and your "sunset" (or rather transition from dim-to-dark)
temperatures are in the mid-high 50's F (12-15 C)


*I already know that the people who love heat will find this disgusting, and those that hate summer will find it refreshing. (simply because they might hate anything that resembles summer or "warmth") But most people I've met in real-life do not fall into either category. So this is mostly to find out what average people feel about this, however, heat-lovers and cold-lovers are welcome to comment too.

Thanks.

You're right~it sounds WAY too cool to me for a summer day. The lack of sunshine doesn't appeal to me either.

I wouldn't mind a day like that from November-March. Those temperatures are warm enough to be comfortable. They're just not good summer temperatures. I've seen summer days like that and I don't like them. Just doesn't seem warm enough to be summer. I guess you could say the weather isn't bad, but it's just happening at the wrong time of year.

Even though I'm a cooler than warmer type, I wouldn't like that for summer, especially without sun!

For a summertime high, that is a bit on the cool side (and this is from someone who lived in Montana for over 20 years, and have seen sleet fall on the 4th of July, and a 6" snowfall on August 22nd 1992!!!). But, then again, I have been in Texas for the last 15 years, so my blood has thinned out a bit. Just don't handle the cold stuff as well.

YUCK!!!!No Thanks, even Cleveland, OH wasn't that bad (summers were usually upper 70s to mid 80s for highs, and usually sunny). Now, from Nov to Mar, that doesn't sound too bad, but the clouldy overcast part really would irk me.

Funny y'all should mention that,
because what I described is the "worst" that July can throw at Toronto.
(and July is still remarkably more stable and warm than our June or August )
I've seen days like this, maybe 1/3 to 1/5 of all Julys, for a single day.
(okay, as cool and windy but not neccessarily overcast )

Interesting that the "worst" English summer days are just like the "worst" Toronto summer days
especially considering Toronto is almost 10 degrees closer to the equator...

Not surprised that Cleveland's summer cool spells don't come close,
as it is, afterall, on the south side of the Great Lakes while we are on the north.
Unlike Cleveland, we have nearly no "marine" moderation from cool-cold blasts from northern Canada;
all we have is our latitude, which usually diminishes the chilly blasts, but doesn't block it,
unless the Jet Stream gets in the way.

** Anyways, keep up the posting. I hope that my posts at least do not come across as a rant, but rather,
I thought it might intruige City-Data members to hear what kind of summer extremes Toronto can get.
(it seems that "extreme heat" gets all the attention in summer )

I don't think you rant, if so, in a constructive way, at least!

I didn't post in weather last summer (my 1st in TR) so it will be interesting to me this summer! I think TR is probably cooler than I would normally like but I have so much yard work I'm doing not paying close attention!
