Heat Warning

Issued at 15:36 Saturday 23 July 2016

The mid summer heat episode continued today with temperatures once again reaching the low thirties this afternoon. Humidex values are in the mid to upper thirties in a somewhat less humid airmass.

As a result of the less humid airmass in place today, temperatures tonight will drop to the upper teens, providing some relief from the heat. The heat warning will likely be ended overnight, with temperatures Sunday and next week remaining quite warm, but just below the heat warning threshold.

###

Heat illnesses are preventable.

While heat can put everyone at risk from heat illnesses, health risks are greatest for
- older adults;
- infants and young children;
- people with chronic illnesses such as breathing difficulties, heart conditions or psychiatric illnesses;
- people who work in the heat;
- people who exercise in the heat;
- homeless people; and
- people without access to air conditioning.

Heat warnings are issued when very high temperature or humidity conditions are expected to pose an elevated risk of heat illnesses, such as heat stroke or heat exhaustion.

Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to storm.ontario@ec.gc.ca or tweet reports to #ONStorm.
