Just recently on the radio (CBC) there was a program indicating that 'due to climate change' the weather in Ontario (specifically the southern half) has become totally unpredictable. So far we have had three or four hot baking days, and the rest have been almost 'rain forest' weather. Everyday, for weeks now, we have had a sunny bright days, warm in the mid to high 20's, then suddenly, cloud over and torrential downpours and thunderstorms with funnel clouds, damaging hail and the odd tornado. Normally, the weather in July and August was the 'three H's'..Hazy, Hot, and Humid, added to, within the last few years, 'smog advisories or bad air days', depending on wind direction. So, you can count on nothing really at all.

Historically, for the month of August, the average high is 26C and the average low is 16C. (…ec.gc.ca/climate_normals/results_e.html…)

The summer usually brings a number of heat waves with highs in the low 30s (and humidity that makes it feel like 38-40C). But the weather has been particularly weird this year, so I wouldn't bet against it dipping down to 10C on one or two nights.

Yes the weather is too unpredictable to predict. Our weather can change from sweltering heat in the mid 30's to a blast of cool air from the north dropping temps into the teens in a matter of hours. Even in July and August. But for the most part and based on the past years it is generally nice and sunny with highs in 26 to 30 range in July. Do expect some really good thunder boomers if your staying a month.
