Halton and Surrounding Cities Could Experience Record-Breaking Heat Today
While Environment Canada has yet to issue a heat warning for Halton and Peel (Mississauga, Brampton, Caledon, Oakville, Burlington, Milton and Halton Hills), early weather reports have indicated that today could be the hottest Sept. 5 on record.
Bill Coulter, a meteorologist with CP24, recently took to Twitter to forecast “hot, hazy, humid and potentially record breaking heat today).
Hot, hazy, humid and potentially record breaking heat today (old record set in 1945 at 31.7C). The risk of showers tonight and early tomorrow will mark the advance of cooler air that will remain in place over the region through the weekend.— Bill Coulter (@BillCoulterTO) September 5, 2018
Temperatures in Oakville, Burlington, Milton and Halton Hills are expected to reach 32 degrees today.
According to Coulter, the old record—31.7 degrees—was set in 1945.
Coulter says potential showers tonight and tomorrow will bring in colder air, effectively cooling the region.
