A hot airmass approaching the area is expected to bring daytime temperatures in the low thirties over the next couple of days.
With increasing humidity on Wednesday, humidex values are expected to creep in the mid to high thirties. Lows between 20 and 22 degrees Celsius are also expected Tuesday night.
Temperatures will cool off Wednesday night as Tropical Depression Cristobal approaches Ontario, Environment Canada says.
