Heat event this week.
Generally hot and sunny weather is expected and nights will be rather warm compared to the seasonal norms. Temperatures will be especially high in urban areas. However, the weather will remain dry, which will limit the added effect of the humidity index value.
During high heat events, drink lots of water even before feeling thirsty.
Young children, pregnant women, the elderly, persons with chronic underlying medical conditions and those working or exercising outdoors are at higher risk.
Never leave people or pets in a parked vehicle.
Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to QCstorm@ec.gc.ca or tweet reports using #QCStorm.
