Heat Warning in effect for:

  • Little Abitibi - Kesagami Lake
  • Timmins - Cochrane - Iroquois Falls
  • Fraserdale - Pledger Lake
  • Kapuskasing - Hearst - Smooth Rock Falls

A period of hot weather is expected.

Daytime high temperatures in the low thirties will begin today and will continue through the end of the week. Overnight low temperatures near 18 degrees Celsius will provide little relief from the heat.

Please refer to your public forecast for further details on expected temperatures.

Hot and humid air can also bring deteriorating air quality and can result in the Air Quality Health Index approaching the high risk category.

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.

Never leave people or pets inside a parked vehicle.

Watch for the symptoms of heat illness: dizziness/fainting; nausea/vomiting; rapid breathing and heartbeat; extreme thirst; decreased urination with unusually dark urine.

Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to ONstorm@canada.ca or tweet reports using #ONStorm.
