A stretch of hot weather is expected and Environment Canada has issued a heat warning.
Daytime high temperatures of 29 to 35 degrees Celsius inland and near 27 degrees Celsius near the water can be expected. Early morning low temperatures will range from 16 to 18 degrees C, and the heat wave is expected to be on Wednesday and Thursday, but temperatures are expected to moderate on Friday.
The hottest time of the day will be late afternoon to early evening.
“Extreme heat affects everyone. The risks are greater for young children, pregnant women, older adults, people with chronic illnesses and people working or exercising outdoors,” says Environment Canada.
Watch for the effects of heat illness: swelling, rash, cramps, fainting, heat exhaustion, heat stroke and the worsening of some health conditions.
