Description


A period of very hot and humid weather is occurring.

Time span: continuing through Thursday.

Maximum temperature today: 30 to 35 degrees Celsius (Humidex 39 to 45)
Minimum temperature tonight: 18 to 23 degrees Celsius.

Maximum temperature Thursday: 30 to 35 degrees Celsius (Humidex 39 to 45)
Minimum temperature Thursday night: 17 to 20 degrees Celsius. Cooler in northern sections of the province.

Locations: New Brunswick.

Remarks: Hot and humid conditions could possibly continue into Friday, especially over southern areas of the province. Nighttime lows are expected to remain very warm for the period, limiting overnight cooling.

Drink plenty of water regularly, even before you feel thirsty to decrease your risk of dehydration. Thirst is not a good indicator of dehydration.

Watch for early signs of heat illness - feeling unwell, fatigue, thirst, headache - all these can rapidly evolve into life-threatening emergencies. Move to a cooler environment immediately, such as a shaded or air-conditioned space.

Heat stroke is a medical emergency! Call 911 or your local emergency number immediately if you or someone you are caring for has a high body temperature and is either confused, has stopped sweating or becomes unconscious. While waiting for help, cool the person right away: move them to a cool place, apply cold water to large areas of the skin and fan the person as much as possible.
