We can expect a lot of heat over the next 48 hours in Mississauga, Brampton, and other parts of southern Ontario.

A heat warning is currently in effect for:

  • Mississauga
  • Brampton
  • Burlington
  • Oakville
  • Caledon
  • Halton Hills
  • Milton

The two-day heatwave is forecast for Tuesday through Wednesday, with temperatures on both days expected to reach low to mid thirties (degrees Celsius).

Temperatures in the low twenties on Tuesday night and Wednesday night will provide little relief from the heat.

Cooler air is expected to arrive by Thursday.

To stay safe from the heat, residents are advised to stay indoors when possible, drink water regularly, eat light, cool meals, and avoid leaving people or pets inside a parked vehicle.

Heat risks are greater for young children, pregnant women, older adults, people with chronic illnesses and people working or exercising outdoors.
