First Toronto Heat Warning For 2019

Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement for the city of Toronto, warning of high daytime temperatures for the remainder of the week.

  “A relatively hot and humid airmass has reached the area and will remain in place through Friday,” says the national weather service. “Maximum afternoon temperatures near 30 degrees and humidex values in the high thirties are forecast for most areas with slightly cooler temperatures near the shores of the Great Lakes.”

Some relief from the heat will come during the overnight hours as temperatures dip to between 17 C and 20 C.

  Heat warnings are in effect in some areas across the province including Windsor and Ottawa where humidex values will make it feel like 40 C over the next few days.

Toronto Public Health recommends staying cool by drinking plenty of water even before you feel thirsty. As well, checking in with friends, family, and neighbours who may be more vulnerable to the heat. These include children, pregnant women, older adults and people with chronic illnesses.

There’s also a reminder to never leave people or pets inside vehicles as temperatures can reach dangerous levels in a short span of time.

A cold front is scheduled to move in Friday which will bring cooler temperatures and lower humidity for the weekend.
