The journey back to seasonal, plus a cycling interruption on Thursday?

We made it through the seasonably chilly air (understatement), and had to dive for our beloved arm-warmers once again. The temperatures are trending in the right direction, with several seasonal days lining up this week, before a rude interruption arriving on Thursday.

TUESDAY

  • Similar to Monday, and the morning ride temperatures are now in the low-teens

  • A little upper level ridge sets up show across the GTA, so prepare for mostly sunny conditions through the majority of a day, with a very slight risk of a pop-up shower by evening

  • Light southwest wind 15-30 km/h for most of the GTA, with temperatures near 20°C the Lakeshore with perhaps a couple 23°Cs and 24°Cs thrown in, inland.

WEDNESDAY

  • A weather transition day, as an upper disturbance approaches from the southwest with an east wind developing, keeping temperatures near 20°C or a tick below along the lakeshore

  • Increasing clouds throughout the afternoon, but showers set to hold off until later Wednesday evening

THURSDAY

  • Perhaps the worst riding day of the week, with a period of wet weather through the first half of the day, becoming scattered into the afternoon - looks like the water-proof gear is a necessary item

  • Mostly cloud conditions, winds gusting up to 40 km/h out of the southwest along the front

  • Temperatures may struggle to get much above 20°C with cloud cover and rainfall potential

  • There’s even the possibility to see a round of thunderstorms throughout the day

FRIDAY

  • We’ll call this an improvement over Thursday, that looks to be a given with variable skies

  • Still a lingering threat of showers, but nothing particularly sustained, with a light lake breeze developing at 10-20 km/h

  • This is the only day that has potential to feel a touch muggy, into the upper 20’s with the humidex

  • With increased moisture comes the risk of a pop-up thunderstorm on Friday

RIDE OF THE WEEK: HUDSON AVE.

  • If you’re not a fan of stop lights, this might be your ride, a direct express out of the G.T.A., with very few interruptions and very little in the way of potential navigation gaffes

  • Either leave from Victoria Square or further south if you want to beef up the distance, but the full, round trip up Warden to Lake Simcoe is around 90 km

  • Ride length: 3+ hours of saddle time

  • Surface: Pavement
