Hamilton remains under a special weather statement as temperatures across the city are expected to reach record highs on Tuesday (May 31).

According to Environment Canada, Tuesday’s high is expected to reach 31 degrees Celsius, which will feel more like 36 with the humidex.

The weather agency notes that the warmest May 31 on record in Hamilton was back in 1988 when the temperature peaked at 30.9.

With temperatures expected to remain quite warm over the next day or so, the City of Hamilton encouraged residents to consider various ways to keep cool.

In fact, all seven of Hamilton’s public beaches, which are monitored by Public Health Services, are currently listed as ‘safe’ for swimming. Water quality testing results can be found on the City’s website here.

Most of Hamilton’s spray pads are also operational in time for the city’s first real heat event of 2022. Locations and status of spray pads across the city can be found here.

As the week wears on, temperatures are expected to return to more seasonal norms and a chance of rain on both Wednesday and Thursday.
