Extreme heat continues this week in Almaguin, North Bay

ThermometerSized

Temperatures approaching 30 C degrees are expected for P.E.I. on Tuesday and will continue on Wednesday, according to the latest Environment Canada forecast. "However the daytime highs are still expected near 30 and overnight lows in the high teens", Environment Canada said Monday.

The adopted criteria includes a daytime temperature of 29 degrees Celsius or higher and nighttime temperature of 16 degrees or higher or a humidex of 36 degrees Celsius or higher. Low temperatures overnight will again be in the high teens to low twenties providing little relief from the heat. A cold front will usher in a slightly cooler air mass for today. "Extreme heat affects everyone".

Thursday's outlook is mixed skies and a high of 34 C. There's a 60 per cent chance of overnight showers and a low of 22 C.

Meanwhile, the the Middlesex-London Health Unit (MLHU) has prolonged their extended heat warning.

The national forecaster says temperatures could reach the mid-30s with humidex values into the mid-40s, while some areas could see severe thunderstorms.

It says "a very warm and humid airmass" will settle over eastern Quebec and the Maritime provinces this weekend, and will last into next week.

This will be the most significant heat event in the past few years. "And also keep in mind to make sure you don't leave any people or pets in your auto, as temperatures will rise dramatically within minutes".

Drouin says the victims fit the profile of people authorities describe as at risk: those with chronic illness or mental-health problems, people who live alone and people without air conditioning at home.

The agency says with the humidity Monday, it will feel like 43. Watch for the effects of heat illness: swelling, rash, cramps, fainting, heat exhaustion, heat stroke and the worsening of some health conditions.
