All depends WHERE you are (remember RFD Members post from right across Canada). Not everyone in Ontario lives in the GTA either, weather across this province alone has been VASTLY different with Eastern Ontario & West Quebec seeing one of the worst summers on record. I've gathered a few numbers for those who like stats:
Stats for 2017 Eastern Ontario (Ottawa nearest large city)
SEASONAL HIGH = 32.5 C on June 11th
SEASONAL LOW = -0.4 on May 9th
SEASONAL RAIN = 495 mm as of August 21st ... WAY WAY WAY above average.
HIGH 30.8 C on May 17th
LOW = -0.4 C on May 9th

AUGUST (So far)
HIGH = 30.0 C on August 2nd

This is August so far (our best month of the summer). Stats do not include today, which has seen us with very humid weather (feels like 36 C) and a ton more rain... Right now we are in an Environment Canada Severe Weather / Tornado Watch. ugh !!!
Forecast for the rest of the month is more of the same... More rain & not enough sun, with below average temps (overnight lows coming this weekend in the single digits).
No two ways about it Summer 2017 has sucked here.
