Heat warning issued again for the Maritimes

Heat warning issued again for the Maritimes

Thunderstorms could close out the long weekend after three straight days of stifling heat in Toronto.

Environment Canada issued a Special Weather Advisory stating extreme heat is expected to hit most the province this week.

Halifax's heat warning was expected to linger until Wednesday or Thursday, with daytime highs around 30 C and maximum humidex values as high as 40 expected until then.

A cold front is expected to move through the area on Tuesday, which will bring an end to the short heat event.

A severe thunderstorm watch has been issued for the city of Toronto and the Greater Toronto Area with Environment Canada warning of storms capable of producing strong wind gusts and heavy rain.

Alberta Health Services says people can take precautions by rescheduling outdoor activities to cooler hours of the day, taking frequent breaks from the heat, and drinking plenty of water.

Pets, however, are not allowed in the city's swimming pools, wading pools or splash pads.
