We’re just a few days into fall, but we continue to get the heat that we didn’t get much of over the Summer. The Heat Warning will continue for the Ottawa-Gatineau region and Eastern Ontario for Tuesday and Wednesday. Daytime temperatures are not expected to drop below 30 degrees Celsius until Thursday, when the daytime high will hit a more fall-like 18 degrees.
From Environment Canada…
Hot and humid conditions will continue early this week.
Mostly sunny skies have allowed daytime temperatures to reach the low thirties today, with humidex values approaching forty. Similar conditions are expected Tuesday.
A cold front is expected to move across Southern Ontario through the day Wednesday bringing cooler temperatures by Thursday.
Extreme heat affects everyone.
The risks are greater for young children, pregnant women, older adults, people with chronic illnesses and people working or exercising outdoors.
Reduce your heat risk. Schedule outdoor activities during the coolest parts of the day.
Seek a cool place such as a tree-shaded area, swimming pool, shower or bath, or air-conditioned spot like a public building.
Never leave people or pets inside a parked vehicle.
Outdoor workers should take regularly scheduled breaks in a cool place.
Heat warnings are issued when very high temperature or humidity conditions are expected to pose an elevated risk of heat illnesses, such as heat stroke or heat exhaustion.
