Heat warning issued for southern Ontario for Sunday and Monday

Meteorological service under the Ministry of environmental protection of Canada issued a warning about the heat, covering most of the territory of southern Ontario, which will operate from Sunday 5 August.

City officials also issued a heat warning for Toronto on Sunday.

Environment Canada says risks are greater for young children, pregnant women, older adults, people with chronic illnesses and people working or exercising outdoors.

For people experiencing homelessness, TTC tokens are available at several drop-ins throughout the city to be used to get to cool places.


Environment Canada and Halton Region remind residents to never leave people or pets inside a parked vehicle.

For Halifax, daytime highs of 29 to 32 degrees are expected, with humidex values in the upper 30's.

In southern Ontario and Quebec, the humidex is also likely to hit the low 40s today, however, forecasters say cooler air is expected to move into parts of Ontario this evening, bringing an end to what has been a almost weeklong heat event.
