Calgary to begin scorcher of a week with heat warning issued

The weather office says the inner south coast - including eastern Vancouver Island, the Sunshine Coast, Howe Sound, the southern Gulf Islands, Victoria and Vancouver - will see temperatures climb to at least 28 C, although conditions should be cooler close to the water.

Residents in Southwestern Ontario may get some relief from the stifling heat Monday afternoon.

Unless you have an airconditioned home, you probably already know that the heat warning for the City of Calgary remains in place by the stifling heat you woke up to.

"Scattered thunderstorms will affect the region today". Temperatures are also expected to hold near 20 degrees overnight.

With that being said, Tuesday temperatures are expected to rise back up to 24°C, with inland temperatures hitting 30°C. They can also make breathing more hard.

During a warning, you are encouraged to visit family, friends and neighbours, especially isolated adults and seniors who are at greater risk of suffering from heat-related illness, to make sure they are cool and drinking plenty of fluids.

And, of course, never leave people or pets inside a parked vehicle.

Environment Canada warns that swelling, rash, cramps, fainting, heat exhaustion and heat stroke are all effects of heat illness.

The warning on its website continues, "Some slightly cooler weather is in store beginning mid-week as an on-shore flow develops".
