The heat warning issued by Environment Canada for the City of Toronto on Friday remains in effect today as temperatures are expected to reach a high of 32°C with a humidex value of 41°C.
According to Environment Canada, hot and humid conditions are expected today.
“Daytime maximum temperatures in the low thirties are expected along with overnight low temperatures near the 20 degree mark,” states the weather agency. “There may be a brief respite from the heat in some areas today as showers or thunderstorms are possible.”
Environment Canada says hot and humid air can also bring deteriorating air quality and can cause the Air Quality Health Index to approach the high risk category.
But relief is on the way.
A cold front is expected to deliver a cooler and less humid air mass to the area on Tuesday. The high is expected to reach 26°C, and the low will dip to 15°C.
For today, Environment Canada reminds the public rink plenty of water even before you feel thirsty and stay in a cool place, and never leave people or pets inside a parked vehicle.
