Heat warning issued again for the Maritimes

It's now 30°C in the city as of 11 am and it's expected to reach 34°C later this afternoon.

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

Overnight minimum temperatures will only fall to near 20°C, providing little relief from the heat.

Heat warnings were also in effect Monday afternoon around Westlock and Bonnyville, and south to the USA border near Cardston, Lethbridge and Cypress Hills Provincial Park.

It's expected to be another hot day in Hamilton today as the city remains under a heat warning.




Hasell also reminded people never to leave children or pets inside vehicles.

"A cold front is expected to move through the area Tuesday bringing an end to this event", Environment Canada said.

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

Monitor for symptoms of heat stroke or heat exhaustion, such as high body temperature, lack of sweat, confusion, fainting, and unconsciousness.
