Could today be the hottest day on record in Toronto? It depends on which records you consult.
It is hot as a mother…… I think Toronto’s extreme heat wave of 38 degrees Celsius (although it feels like 49 degrees, which is about the same as the daytime temperature in Dubai, U.A.E.) will break about as many records as Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2. Okay that might be a slight exaggeration on my part, but today might go down in history as the hottest day ever recorded in the city.
