Environment Canada’s heat warning for Toronto continues on Wednesday, as the humidex is expected to reach 37°C in the city.

According to the weather warning, as the first heat event of the season continues, “temperatures will peak again to near the thirty degree mark in many areas today. While temperatures Thursday will continue to be above normal, they will be a little lower than today due to more cloud cover and perhaps an isolated shower or thunderstorm in the afternoon.”

Wednesday’s high is 30°C, while Thursday is expected to be 27°C.

Environment Canada states that by Friday, a cold front will deliver considerably cooler and less humid air to Southern Ontario.

With it will come a chance of showers leading into a sunny weekend.

As the heat warning continues, officials say to drink plenty of water even before you feel thirsty and stay in a cool place.

Never leave people or pets inside a parked vehicle.

And as usual, if you head outside in this heat, be sure to practice physical distancing.
