Heat Warning

Issued at 23:40 Saturday 23 July 2016

Humidex values reaching near 40 are expected.

The mid summer heat episode will continue on Sunday and early next week. Daytime temperatures will reach the low thirties. Overnight lows will remain in the low twenties, providing little relief from the heat.

Afternoon humidex values will peak in the low forties this weekend.

Latest indications suggest a weak cold front will move through late Monday or Tuesday. In its wake, the weather will continue to be very warm, albeit somewhat less humid, with temperatures and humidex values settling down to just below the heat warning threshold.

Heat illnesses are preventable.

- extreme thirst and
- decreased urination with unusually dark yellow urine.
If you experience any of these symptoms during a heat event, immediately move to a cool place and drink liquids. Water is best.
