After a good soaking from a storm system, the current weather looks to be hot, sunny, and quickly drying out over the next week.

Temperatures will be staying high above 20 degrees, with the exception of Thursday, which will have a quick dip below.

The temperatures combined with the sunshine are likely to dry out a good chunk of the remaining moisture.

Environment Canada Meteorologist Terri Lang says that could be a good thing for many farmers in the region.

"It all depends on your perspective. For you folks, I think some sunny dry weather would be good because I know that you guys have the soil moister down there, it's quite wet just because you did have that low pressure come through in April. That gave a lot of precipitation and now this particular one came through, so the warm and dry weather is probably beneficial to you folks. For the rest of the province where they lack rain and don't need the heat, maybe not so much. But for you folks, it'll be a good thing."  

The weather is also less concerning for those in the southeast who still have moisture, compared to other areas which could see wildfires pop up.

"For the rest of the province, the risk is really, really high. The fire danger is quite high, at least for the next couple of days, with the really warm temperatures and really, really dry conditions," said Lang, "We'll have a cool front moving through as well that's going to whip up the winds and that will probably make the fires take off. So yeah, it's not looking so good, but for you folks down in the corner, probably not so much of a risk anymore."

One risk that will be present comes from the sun, with the UV index soaring this week.

Lang asks that people take precautions for that.

"That's going to be the case probably for the rest of the summer. So UV Index is 8 or higher, which means you'll burn quite rapidly. So just that reminder for folks to put on sunscreen before heading out, to make sure you drink lots of water and seek shade, especially during the high sun times and the warmest part of the day, both of which do not coordinate. The highest sun angle is right around noon to one, and the warmest temperatures of the day are usually late in the day around four or five."
