heat wave toronto

Toronto getting another heat wave this week

As July draws to a close, we're finally getting the hot, humid weather that's mostly evaded us this summer. Environment Canada expects today's high to hit 33 C. It could reach 34 C tomorrow and 35 C on Wednesday. However, the humidex could make seem even warmer outside.

Drink lots of water, seek shade (or stay inside) and try to avoid overexerting yourself outdoors. The city also recommends checking in on those who may be more vulnerable to these extreme temperatures.

Take this as your opportunity to jump in the lake at one the Toronto's beaches or visit one of Toronto's cooling centres if you're feeling overheated.

How will you keep cool during this Toronto heat wave? Let us know in the comments.
