Heat Warning

Issued at 03:39 Tuesday 26 September 2017

Humidex values reaching 40 are expected.

Exceptionally warm and humid conditions will persist over Southwestern and Central Quebec today with highs near 30 degrees and humidex values between 35 to 40.

Temperatures will therefore stay well above seasonal values of 15 to 18 degrees during the day and 5 to 8 degrees during the night for these areas. It is once again expected that records will be established in some localities.

A return to seasonal values is expected to begin on Thursday.

###

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

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 ec.cpiq_tempetes-qspc_storms.ec@canada.ca or tweet reports using #meteoqc.
