Here we go again! Environment Canada has issued another Heat Warning for the Cornwall region, Eastern Ontario and Western Quebec on Wednesday afternoon. The temperatures started to rise on Wednesday afternoon, but the peak of the latest round of extreme heat will arrive on Thursday morning and it is expected to continue through Friday.
From Environment Canada…
A heat episode is expected on Thursday and Friday for most regions in Southern Ontario. Daytime temperatures will reach low thirties with afternoon humidex values in the mid to upper thirties. Overnight lows will be near 20 degrees.
The heat episode will come to an end Friday night with the passage of a cold front.
Frequently visit neighbours, friends and older family members, especially those who are chronically ill, to make sure that they are cool and hydrated.
Never leave people or pets in your care inside a parked vehicle or in direct sunlight.
Prepare meals that don’t need to be cooked in your oven.
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.
