Humidex values across parts of Ontario this weekend are ‘all set’ to arrive for millions this weekend – just in time for Canada-Day festivities. This will be one of the hottest Canada-Day’s in years.
Across Southwestern and Southern Ontario, the hottest of the two days will be on Saturday with humidex values into the 40s; regions north of Toronto and extreme Southwestern Ontario will ultimately top the mid 40s.
Across Eastern Ontario, such as the Ottawa-Valley, the hottest of the two days will be on Sunday, with humidex values nearing the upper 40s to potentially 50C in some regions. Records will certainly be broken by the end of Sunday.
Temperatures across a multitude of regions this weekend will be in the neighbourhood of 32-36C with certain regions in the Ottawa-Valley potentially reaching 37-38C.
If you plan on enjoying the weekend heat – or Canada-Day/weekend festivities – remain hydrated and be fully cognisant of all potential heat exhaustion signs to prevent heat stroke.
Look-out for one another.
Be safe and have an incredible Canada Day!
After this weekend, temperatures will cool slightly but remain consistently warm for quite some-time. Watch for drought-like conditions for Ontario and Quebec for the remainder of the summer, overall, with intermittent periods of isolated severe thunderstorms.
