Extreme Weather Warning Continues for Halton
Were you drenched in sweat all weekend?
It’s about time it felt like summer.
Well, you aren’t going to get any relief on Monday, especially if you’ve been finding it a little too hot outside (even though we should all take this time to appreciate the hot nights we were denied all spring).
A heat warning is in effect for Halton and Peel (Oakville, Burlington, Milton and Halton Hills, Mississauga, Brampton, Caledon), Environment Canada announced on June 18.
“Hot and humid conditions will continue today,” reads the warning issued at 5:07 a.m.
“High temperatures are expected to reach the low thirties again with peak humidex values near 40 C.”
That said, this heat won’t last forever.
Environment Canada says a cold front is expected to move across Southern Ontario tonight, bringing cooler temperatures by Tuesday.
Extreme heat affects everyone, but the risks are greater for young children, pregnant women, older adults, people with chronic illnesses and people working or exercising outdoors.
To reduce your risk of heat-related illness, you might want to schedule outdoor activities during the coolest parts of the day and seek out shade, swimming pools or air conditioned buildings when the day is at its hottest.
Never leave people or pets inside a parked vehicle.
