Environment Canada’s heat warning remains in effect with the agency forecasting a toasty 33 C inland on Sunday.
The hot weather is expected to continue until Tuesday when the temperature will likely dip slightly to a high of 24 C by the water and 28 C inland. The rest of the week will be a little cooler with daytime highs of 23 C on Wednesday, and then 21 C on Thursday and Friday.
While the sunshine and warmth are welcome for most, Environment and Climate Change Canada and Medical Health Officers are reminding people to take precautions to protect themselves from the heat, including:
– Stay hydrated by drinking cold beverages, preferably water.
– Spend time in an air-conditioned facility for at least several hours every day.
– Avoid sunburn, stay in the shade and use sunscreen with spf 30 or more.
– Never leave children or pets alone in a parked car.
