ThermometerSized

A high of 26 and low of 14 is expected in Toronto on Friday, Ms. Hobelman said, with a chance of showers and a thunderstorm.

The move is part of the federal government's climate change adaptation in expectation of more frequent heat events.

"Extended periods of heat and humidity like we've seen over the weekend and are expecting over the next few days can be especially challenging for seniors, young children and those with medical conditions that put them at greater risk", said Randy Walker, public health inspector with MLHU.

In Montreal alone, six heat-related deaths occurred over the weekend, most of whom impacting people living alone, according to CNN.

Sudbury has been under a heat warning since Friday.

The recent heat wave has plagued central Pennsylvania with highs well into the 90s.

The new system is a partnership between Environment and Climate Change Canada, Health Canada and the Nova Scotia Department of Health and Wellness.

In Toronto and Ottawa, temperatures have remained well above 30 C since Friday. He says the last extended heat wave that baked the area was about seven years ago. The last one was in 2011 at eight days.

Humidex values are expected to make those temperatures feel like the low 40s.

"After a slightly cooler morning, daytime highs in the low thirties will continue today through Thursday", Environment Canada predicts in an updated heat warning Tuesday.

To prevent heat stress during a heat alert, Dr. Strang suggests to stay in a shaded, cool or air-conditioned area, drink plenty of water, wear light-coloured clothing and to not leave anyone or any animal unattended in vehicles.
