It’s hot in Toronto. So hot that Environment Canada has issued a Special Weather Statement for the city.

According to the weather agency, the statement is due to the high daytime temperatures expected Wednesday through Friday.

“A relatively hot and humid airmass has reached the area and will remain in place through Friday. 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,” reads the statement.

“Minimum overnight temperatures are forecast in the 17 to 20 degree range, thus providing some relief from the heat during the overnight hours.”
