Wednesday is hot and Thursday hotter but hang in there for some sweet relief before a beautiful – and finally seasonal – July weekend.
Environment Canada’s heat warning is still in effect but promises that “a cool down is expected by Friday with the passage of a cold front.”
In the meantime, the agency reiterated that pets and people should never be left in parked vehicles and that young children, pregnant women, seniors, the sick, athletes and outdoor workers are most at risk of heat stroke and heat exhaustion.
But “extreme heat affects everyone,” the agency warned.
Wednesday’s forecast is for sunny skies, a high of 35 C that will feel like 40 and a UV index of 9 or very high. The overnight low is 21 C under clear skies.
Thursday starts out sunny but clouds creep in by afternoon along with a 30 per cent chance of late-afternoon showers and the risk of a thunderstorm. The high is 34 C and humidex 44. Overnight, there’s a 60 per cent chance of showers and a low of 20 C.
The mercury will only rise to 22 C Friday under mixed skies with a 30 per cent chance of showers and we’ll all sleep well with an overnight low of 11 C.
Saturday is sunny and 28 C with a low of 14 C.
Sunday is sunny with a high of 29 C and low of 17 C.
Temperatures start creeping back up Monday with a high of 32 C under mixed skies and a low of 19 C.
Tuesday is sunny and 31 C.
