LOL. Toronto summers are far from "super hot and humid" - average August high is 78 degrees.

You need an air conditioner in Toronto. It gets super muggy and sticky. If Toronto isn't hot and humid, I don't know what is.

Perhaps if you're comparing it to Florida and the Caribbean, then you can consider it not hot. But when I was there it was pretty hot!

I grew up in Buffalo, just south of Toronto, and I consider the summer in that region to be pretty idyllic, although I agree an air conditioner comes in handy at times. The great thing about summers there is that there's some variety to the weather and you benefit from cool fronts.

Here in Atlanta it's 88 to 95 every friggin' day for three straight months. It's just relentless. That's why I laugh a bit when people complain about Toronto summers, sort of like I laugh when people complain about the winters down here.

Fusion, the forecast high in T.O. is 73 degrees today and 59 tomorrow (fahrenheit of course)... I guess it's it's all relative. It's already about 85 where I am.

I'll trade you summers any day!

Don't forget, you're comparing these temps to the deep freeze you just emerged from

Also worth pointing out the temperatures can vary a lot depending on distance from the lake. Yesterday I drove up to Acton and the car showed 31C a bit north of Milton (although humidity was relatively low so not really unpleasant). It was literally 10C cooler by Lake Ontario.

Friday I went for a long bike ride in the afternoon/evening and it was a little on the hot side at times but overall quite pleasant. And it was actually rather chilly by the lake around 10pm.

Today I went for a long walk mid-day, it very humid by the lake with heavy fog rolling off the lake, so combine the 100% humidity with the strong mid-day sun. It was still nice, but just breathing in the warm very humid air, it felt rather jungle-like even though it was only about 24C.

No, not at all.

I was in Las Vegas in the summer time. 50 degrees Celsius. Toronto doesn't even compare.

People here are very dumb sometimes.
