The hot, still air may also deteriorating air quality, the weather agency warned.

“Drink plenty of water even before you feel thirsty and stay in a cool place,” Environment Canada said in its warning. “Seek a cool place such as a tree-shaded area, swimming pool, shower or bath, or air-conditioned spot like a public building.”

Torontonians are also asked to not leave their children or pets in vehicles during hot weather like this.

The heat warning has been in effect since Friday.
