Heat warnings issued for much of southern Ontario as two-day heat event forecast
Much of southern Ontario is under a heat warning as a two-day heat spell is expected this weekend.
Environment Canada has issued heat warnings for part of the province from Cornwall to Barrie and southwest of Windsor.
Maximum temperatures are expected to reach or exceed 30°C and reach 40°C when combined with humidity.
The weather agency says minimum temperatures in the low to mid-twenties are expected, bringing little relief from the heat.
Cooler temperatures are forecast for Monday.
Residents are advised to drink plenty of water before they even feel thirsty, stay in a cool place, and watch older family, friends and neighbors to make sure they stay hydrated and cool.
