According to the Weather Network, this week could be Toronto’s hottest one of the year. Today, the forecast in Toronto is said to feel like 40 degrees Celsius. The city said it will not open its cooling centres until Environment Canada issues a heat warning. The heat and humidity will hit parts of southern Ontario and Quebec.
Temperatures in these areas will remain in the high 20s and low 30s, but with the humidex factor Monday will feel like high 30s, says Environment Canada. The weather agency has not released a heat warning for the area but they have issued heat warnings for the western and eastern edges of the province in Windsor and Ottawa.
In a statement, the city of Toronto said “ECCC issues a heat warning when it forecasts two or more consecutive days with daytime maximum temperatures of 31 C or warmer, together with minimum nighttime temperatures of 20 C or warmer, or when there is a forecast of two or more consecutive days with humidex values expected to reach 40 C or higher.”
