Environment Canada has issued a heat warning for Toronto & GTA.
The weather agency says hot & humid weather will arrive Thursday & continue into the weekend.
Heat warnings are issued when very high temperature or humidity conditions are expected to pose an elevated risk of heat illnesses, such as heat stroke or heat exhaustion.
The forecast is calling for 4 straight days of temperatures into the 30’s.
Environment Canada is warning people to watch for symptoms of heat illness, which include dizziness or fainting, nausea or vomiting, headache, rapid breathing and heartbeat, extreme thirst and decreased urination with unusually dark yellow urine.
If you experience any of these symptoms during a heat event, immediately move to a cool place and drink liquids, preferably water.
Some tips to keep cool and healthy include drinking plenty of liquids especially water before you feel thirsty to decrease your risk of dehydration.
Frequently visit neighbours, friends and older family members, especially those who are chronically ill, to make sure that they are cool and hydrated.
Never leave people or pets in your care inside a parked vehicle or in direct sunlight.
The current forecast isn’t calling for temperatures below 30 until Monday.
