It's going to feel like 43 C in Toronto this week
Last week's relief from obscenely hot conditions in Toronto has officially come to an end: The city is currently under alert with dangerously hot temperatures expected throughout Wednesday.
Enivonrment Canada issued a special weather statement for the city and other parts of the Greater Toronto Area on Tuesday, calling for daytime highs of 31-33 degrees Celsius.
The humidex will make these conditions feel even hotter, however – around 43 degrees.
There won't be much relief when the sun goes down either, as the statement states that temperatures on Wednesday night will hover around the 23 degree Celsius point.
