Victoria Day, which will be celebrated on Monday (May 18), is the unofficial beginning of the summer season in Canada. In that sense, it’s the equivalent of our Memorial Day, which is a week later.
Memorial Day in this country often has unpleasant weather for a so-called summer holiday. Many a picnic in the northern part of the United States has been canceled by 55 degrees and rain. I’m no weather expert, so it’s hard to imagine how summer-like Victoria Day will be in Canada.
Wait a minute. I am a weather expert, so here are forecasts for a few Canadian cities for Monday as “summer” begins in Canada.

Turn on the air conditioner; it’s going to be a scorcher.
