Long, Significant Heat Wave to Hit Mississauga This Week


Published August 8, 2016 at 11:45 pm


It’s definitely not the first heat wave we’ve had this summer, but Environment Canada believes it may be the longest and most significant one so far.

A heat warning is in effect for this week, with temperatures expected to reach near 40 degrees.

The cause is a hot and humid airmass moving in from the US on Tuesday afternoon.

Hot and humid conditions under partly to mostly sunny skies are expected from Wednesday through Friday.

There are also indications of a weak cold front moving through sometime Friday night, along with the chance of showers and thunderstorms, to potentially make for a considerably cooler weekend.

Again, EC is encouraging citizens to stay cool and hydrated in the heat. Reschedule any outdoor activities for cooler times of the day, and avoid oven-cooked meals if you can help it.
