From Ottawa to Windsor, southern Ontario is under a heat warning.
Here in Durham, we’re expecting daytime temperatures in the low 30s on Saturday and Sunday.
When you factor in humidity, it’ll feel closer to the low 40s at times.
We won’t get much of a break overnight, with lows hovering around 20°C.
Environment Canada is expecting a bit of relief on Monday, with rain in the forecast and daytime highs below the 30°C mark.
Drink plenty of water and, if you’re spending any time outside this weekend, wear something loose, breathable and light-coloured.
If you’re someone who’s vulnerable to extreme heat, try to spend more time indoors.
During the summer, temperatures usually peak between noon and 3:30 p.m.
That’s a good time to find a shady place to rest or seek out somewhere with air conditioning, like a mall or public library.
You’re also reminded to never leave pets or vehicles alone in a vehicle– even after the heat warning evaporates.
High temperatures can also reduce air quality, so people with respiratory issues should be extra careful.
