Hot, humid weather to continue into Tuesday, federal weather agency says

Hot and humid — that’s the forecast for the year’s “first heat event,” says Environment Canada, as temperatures reached above 30 C in Toronto and surrounding areas on Monday.

Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement for southwestern Ontario calling for steamy conditions.

Though there will be a brief dip Monday overnight to mid to upper teens, hot and humid weather is expected to follow into Tuesday.

On Tuesday, maximum temperatures are again expected to reach the low 30s, with minimum temperatures hovering around the low 20s for many areas.

Cooler air will arrive on Wednesday, Environment Canada said.

The conditions, however, pose a health risk for those at risk from heat, including older adults, infants, young children, and people with chronic illnesses.

Residents are advised to drink plenty of water and keep cool by dressing for the weather.
