Environment Canada issues Special Weather Advisory over high temps

Environment Canada says cooling is expected on Friday.

You won't get much relief at night either, as overnight lows for the next three days are 19°C, 18°C and 20°C.

This will be a prolonged heat wave with daytime highs in the 30s.

Seek a cool place such as a tree-shaded area, swimming pool, shower or bath, or air-conditioned spot like a public building.

And it goes without saying, but "never leave people or pets inside a parked vehicle" in this kind of heat.

A total of 90 heat warnings were in effect in eight of Canada's 10 provinces Tuesday morning, according to Environment Canada. "Overnight minimum temperatures will only recover to the upper teens to 20 degrees for the next couple of nights".

But what's considered a heat warning on P.E.I. may not be considered a heat warning in other parts of Canada, said Jill Maepea, meteorologist with Environment Canada. Significant cooling will occur on Saturday as a cold front moves through the area.

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

A special air quality statement has been issued for southern Manitoba today.

Heat warnings on P.E.I. are also issued "when two or more consecutive days of humidex values are expected to reach 35 or higher".

Environment Canada is reminding people to take frequent breaks from the heat or to reschedule any planned outdoor activities in the extreme heat.
