Environment Canada issued heat warning for different provinces, as temperatures are expected to reach or surpass 20 C. The heat advisory covers large swaths of New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Ontario and Quebec. Some residents are warned that some areas may not see cooler temperatures until the weekend.
The weather agency also said that hot and humid air can also bring deteriorating air quality. It is encouraged to watch out for the effects of heat illness. This can include swelling, rash, cramps, fainting, heat exhaustion and heat stroke.
British Columbia’s Public Safety Ministry alerted people to be ready for a heat wave. The weather agency said heat in the mid- to high twenties should reach the south coast and parts of the northern Interior by next week.
