So monotonous so bland so boring.
Have you ever heard of a 4 seasons climate ? The Falls with the crisp air in the morning and the beautiful, exquisite color of the leafs whether it be hard maples or Aspens. The first snow of Winter (OK granted Jan & Feb can be tough stuff). The gorgous blossoms of the Spring days.

Perfect weather:

- low 70's F in the early morning (21-23 C)
- 80's late morning until noon (27-31 C)
- low-90's F all afternoon (32-34 C)
- cooling to low 80's not a minute before sunset (27-29 C)
- staying above 75 F until at least mid-night (24 C)

Basically, this is pretty similar to the typical daytime forecast of your hotter Caribbean winter destinations.

Toronto is getting a day exactly like this today.

Last time it was this warm was in early October 2007,
about 2 months later than typical for that kind of "heat wave"

^^ that sounds like my ideals as well

Unfortunately, a typical Melbourne summer day looks like this:

- around 60-65F F in the early morning (15-18 C)
- 70's late morning until noon (around 20-24 C)
- mid 70's to low 80's F all afternoon ( 24-27C)
- cooling to low 70's not a minute before sunset (~21 C)
- staying above 60 F until at least mid-night (16 C)

The HOTTEST OVERALL summer 24 hour period I remember went like this:

The hottest days unfold like this:

- around 80-85 F in the early morning (26-30 C)
- high 90s late morning until noon (around 35-37 C)
- high 90's to 110's F all afternoon ( 37-44C)
- cooling to mid-high 90's not a minute before sunset (>35 C)
- staying above 95F until at least mid-night (35 C)

If that was the norm, that would be splendid

warm, sunny summers
very cold, very snowy winters
gorgeous falls
awesome springs

There is no set "typical" summer day here, but normal mid-summer would probably be like this:

- around 52-65F F in the early morning (11-18 C)
- 65-75 late morning until noon (around 18-24 C)
- high 60's to low 80's F all afternoon (20-29C)
- cooling to 60-72 not a minute before sunset (16-22 C)
- staying above 56-65 F until at least mid-night (13-18C)

JEEPERS! Well I'll be a possum's uncle!... But what's Melbourne's humidity like on a day like that?

High 90's late morning would be VERY strange... almost impossible here.
Ontario's record is only 105 F, so needless to say our hottest days seldom top high 90's F.

The other ones Toronto can do...

Our hottest day that I remember:

- around 82-84 F in the early morning (28-29 C) with 85-95% humidity and extremely light breezes
- high 80s to mid 90's late morning until noon (31-35 C) with 65-80% humidity, starting to get breezy
- high 90's F to 100 F all afternoon (36-38 C) with 50-60% humidity, it's breezy now; feels like a blow dryer
- NOT cooling a minute before sunset (still 36 C or 97 F ), but now with and 55-65% humidity and very light winds
- staying above 95F until at least mid-night (35 C) with 65-75% humidity and extremely light breezes, perhaps a dead calm; feels like a steam room

You'll probably get a lot more sun out in Duluth...
Sault Ste Marie and just about all of northern Ontario is less sunny than Toronto, and even Toronto can get a summer week without sun.

*Better stay at least to the west side of the Great Lakes if you want dependable summer sun.

I would say a typical Perth Summer day, we had 20 consecutive days of of over 86F in daytime and a few nights where it did not drop below 71F...also it is usually with no humidity, just lots of sunshine

ColdCanadian have a look at the weather observations for Perth for the month of Jan:

i guess you're right, I don't exactly know that sunshine stats for Sault Ste Marie, i know Duluth is more sunny in summer, though

just read what your hottest day you remember was: that's just HORRIBLE
I remember one day that was like this(last August)
1. Started out at 80F
2. By Noon it was 100F already
3. By 4PM it was 108 with a heat index of 118
4. By sunset, it was still 103

Most deserts around latitude S25 to S30º less than 100km from the coast tend to be like that.

Days like that in Melbourne usually have humidities below 15%. The hottest days and nights are always extremely dry.

On the flat prairie between Melbourne and Geelong, it warms up very quickly on hot days. The best example i can remember was on Dec 10 2006, when Avalon Airport was over 38ºC (100F) by 9am. Highest temp it got to was I think 42ºC. (108F)

There have been some spectacular nocturnal temps lately aswell.
On New years Eve 2006, Wilson's Prom (southermost point in Victoria) reached 37ºC (98-99F) at 2 AM

On the same night, most of Melbourne was over 35ºC (95F) at 1 AM!

Earlier this year, Melbourne had one of the most spectacular forecasts I've ever seen (for us):

Min 32 Max 40

Unfortunately, early on in the evening, an UNFORECASTED seabreeze/cold front came in and RUINED IT!! Thanks to this travesty, the actual overnight min ended up being 25ºC (78F). Man I was pissed off. We've come so close to breaking the record high minimum temp SO many times over the last few years (sometimes even or 3 times in the one week!) but that bloody seabreeze ALWAYS ruins it!

Sounds like friggin Djoubiti or Kinshasha Congo!
Was it REALLY 35ºC in Toronto at MIDNIGHT!!!??

What's the highest minimum temp you've ever seen in Toronto?
