HEAT WARNING Continues For Our Entire Region Today

Hot and humid conditions expected to continue today and possibly into the middle of this week.

Maximum temperatures: 30 to 32 degrees Celsius, with humidex values 36 to 40.

Minimum temperatures: near 20 degrees Celsius.

Hot and humid air can also bring deteriorating air quality and can cause the Air Quality Health Index to approach the high risk category.

The risks are greater for young children, pregnant women, older adults, people with chronic illnesses and people working or exercising outdoors.

Watch for the effects of heat illness: swelling, rash, cramps, fainting, heat exhaustion, heat stroke and the worsening of some health conditions.

Reduce your heat risk. Schedule outdoor activities during the coolest parts of the day.

Never leave people or pets inside a parked vehicle.

When it’s hot eat cool, light meals.

Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to ONstorm@canada.ca or tweet reports using #ONStorm.
