Environment Canada has ended its heat alert for the City of Toronto and surrounding areas after another days-long heat wave gripped southern Ontario.

The heat warning is expected to end on Wednesday, but then an entirely different - though no less risky - weather front will move in, with a chance of thunderstorms hitting Calgary by Wednesday afternoon.
