A new heat warning system is now in place to warn Nova Scotians when hot and humid weather has the potential to be harmful.

The Ministry of environmental protection of Canada stated that in this regard, the temperature of the air in the world will rise to 30 - 35 starting Friday, June 29.

Toronto will feel no relief from the heat following a blazing hot Canada Day long weekend. However, the daytime highs are still expected near 30 and overnight lows in the high teens.

Environment Canada has issued heat warnings for parts of northern Ontario and all of the southern part of the province. The notice continues: "Daytime highs are expected to reach the low- to mid-30s with humidex values into the mid-40s". "You can maybe turn off your air conditioner and enjoy a few days before the heat builds back up next week". According to current figures, the heat may persist until the middle of next week, as a special metpredprijatija.

"This will likely be the most significant heat event of the season thus far", said meteorologist Jill Maetea, who is based in Fredericton, N.B.

Humidex values will be in the mid 30s on Tuesday, and near 40 for Wednesday and Thursday.

Environment Canada says temperatures will remain high through the week warning people to stay cool.

Watch for the effects of heat illness: swelling, rash, cramps, fainting, heat exhaustion, heat stroke and the worsening of some health conditions.

Never leave people or pets inside a parked vehicle.
