The first week of September is going to be a scorcher in Mississauga, Brampton and most of southern Ontario.

According to Environment Canada, beginning Sept. 3 to Sept. 7, a hot airmass is expected to affect the area and continue through at least mid-week.

As of today (Sept. 4) Labour Day Monday will be extremely hot with temperatures climbing to 33 C.

If you’re headed outdoors, Environment Canada mentions some helpful tips on how residents can beat the heat:

  • Drink plenty of water even before you feel thirsty and stay in a cool place.
  • Check on older family, friends and neighbours. Make sure they are cool and drinking water
  • Never leave people or pets inside a parked vehicle.
  • Outdoor workers should take regularly scheduled breaks in a cool place.

With Tuesday on the horizon, it will be sunny with crystal clear skies. Temperatures will hit 33 C where it will stay for most of the day before dropping to a low of 20 C by the evening.

Wednesday’s weather will bring a mix of sun and clouds, along with a 30 percent chance of rain. By the evening, temperatures will cool down slightly, reaching 18 C.

Meteorologists are forecasting a two-day risk of thunderstorms on Thursday and Friday, with temperatures expected to reach a high of 25 C on both days. During these days, there will be only one to three hours of visible sun. Friday night will bring cooler weather, with temperatures dropping to 12 C — marking the chilliest day of the week.

It will be 22 C on Saturday and mostly cloudy with sunny breaks. Light rain is also on the cards with an anticipated accumulation of five millimetres of rain.

Although temperatures will predominantly be in the high thirties, the Weather Network predicts it will feel much warmer— somewhere between 41 and 43 degrees Celsius with the hottest days being Tuesday and Wednesday.

The arrival of a cold front later this week is expected to bring relief from the ongoing heat, although the exact timing remains uncertain.
