The City of Toronto declared a Heat Warning today, effective until further notice.

Toronto’s daytime high today is expected to reach 30 degrees, but will feel more like 37. The heat wave continues on through Friday, when the temperature is expected to reach a high of 32 degrees. Friday’s weather calls for a possible thunderstorm, and a humidex factor that will make it feel more 40.

During a Heat Warning, the public is encouraged to visit anyone who is at greater risk of suffering from heat-related illness, to ensure they are cool and drinking plenty of fluids.

For those looking to cool down, the City recommends any air-conditioned shopping malls, or one of the 170 local libraries and neighbourhood community centres that are open to the public.
