Environment Canada issues heat warning for Toronto

A break from the heat on the weekend will not last long for Islanders, according to the latest forecast from Environment Canada.

Two days of sweltering heat and humidity is expected for Toronto and much of southern Ontario on Sunday and Monday.

The agency says daytime maximum temperatures are expected to reach 31 degrees Celsius or higher for both Sunday and Monday.

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

For people experiencing homelessness, TTC tokens are available at several drop-ins throughout the city to be used to get to cool places.

Environment Canada is reminding residents that they should never leave people or pets inside a parked vehicle.

The heat event is expected to continue through Monday.

In Alberta, Environment Canada was warning of daytime highs of at least 29 C and overnight lows of at least 14 C through Friday.

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