Heat Warning In Effect Mon, Aug 10th 2020

Once again this summer Environment Canada has had to issue a heat warning for parts of Southern Ontario as temperatures are expected to reach around 30-32 Monday, with a Humidex up toward 41, with not much relief overnight with a low of 20.

The Warning reads;

A heat event is expected from today into Tuesday.

Maximum temperatures today are expected to reach between 30 and 32 degrees Celsius with Humidex values near 41.

Minimum overnight temperatures will be between 20 and 23 degrees Celsius.

A slightly cooler and less humid air mass will arrive in the area late on Tuesday.

Hot and humid air can also bring deteriorating air quality and can result in the Air Quality Health Index to approach the high risk category.

Extreme heat affects everyone.

The risks are greater for young children, pregnant women, older adults, people with chronic illnesses and people working or exercising outdoors.

Never leave people or pets inside a parked vehicle.

Outdoor workers should take regularly scheduled breaks in a cool place.

This is at least the 4th  such event since the beginning of July. Once again everyone is encouraged to take care of themselves and anyone around them who might have difficulty doing so.
