First heat wave of the summer in Toronto this weekend

Toronto's sweltering summer weather will finally arrive this weekend. But, don't get too excited because Environment Canada issued a heat warning for the city, as well as much of southern Ontario.

Temperatures are expected to reach between 30 and 32 C on Saturday and Saturday. However, with the humidex, it could feel more like 40 C. Make sure to limit your physical activity, drink plenty of water and be careful not leave anyone (person or pet) inside a parked a car.

Although babies and young children, older adults and individuals with certain health conditions are most vulnerable, these extreme temperatures can put anyone at risk.

How will you stay cool during Toronto's first heat wave of 2015? Let us know in the comments.
