Extended Heat Warning Issued for Mississauga Heat Wave


Published August 11, 2016 at 4:07 pm


Looks like it’s only going to get hotter before it gets cooler, as evidenced by Environment Canada issuing an extended heat warning for the heat wave that began earlier this week.

Hot and humid conditions are expected to persist through Friday, with daytime high temperatures between 31 and 35 degrees, according to EC. 

Afternoon temperatures are predicted to peak in the high thirties to low forties each day. 

A cold front and chance of rain showers are still expected for Friday night, which should hopefully end the heat wave before the weekend.

Environment Canada is stressing the importance of hydration amidst the heat. Drink water continually even before you feel thirsty, and get out of the heat by spending a few hours in any cool or air-conditioned place. When at home, close your curtains and blinds to block the sun out.
