Heat Alert in Effect
Environment Canada has issued an extreme heat event for the Canada Day long weekend.
Continuing through next week, daytime highs are forecast to reach the low to mid thirties with humidex values into the mid forties. Overnight low temperatures are expected to be in the low twenties, except high teens in some rural areas, providing little relief from the heat.
Current indications suggest hot temperatures could persist through next week. This will be the most significant heat event in the past few years.
