Heat continues in MB & ON

Posted by on Wednesday, September 2, 2015

There are heat warnings in effect for northwestern Ontario and southern Manitoba. Humidex values in the low 40's are expected on Thursday.

A south wind is bringing hot and humid conditions to the area.

The heat is forecast to persist until Saturday when a cold front moves through the region bringing down temperatures.
Environment Canada issues heat warnings when very high temperature or humidity conditions are expected to pose an elevated risk of heat illnesses, such as heat stroke or heat exhaustion.

It is important to watch for symptoms of heat illness, which include
  • dizziness or fainting, nausea or vomiting
  • headache
  • rapid breathing and heartbeat
  • extreme thirst and
  • decreased urination with unusually dark yellow urine.
If you experience any of these symptoms during extreme heat, immediately move to a cool place and drink liquids. Water is best.
