Toronto and Metrolinx issue heat warnings for the Canada Day long weekend Toronto and Metrolinx issue heat warnings for the Canada Day long weekend

Environment Canada says this will be the most significant heat event in the past few years.

Heatwave warnings have been issued in much of Ontario and Quebec as "a warm air mass settles in" for the next four or five days, according to Environment Canada. Low temperatures overnight are expected to be in the high teens to low twenties providing little relief from the heat.

The forecast calls for a high of 36C in Ottawa on Sunday.

The all-time record for July 1 is 35.6 (1963), so it is possible that a new mark will be set tomorrow as well.

Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada.

Maxime Roy, from the city's public health department, recommended that people avoid physical activity outdoors and stay hydrated.

Officials say the extreme head can cause dehydration, heat exhaustion, heat stroke and even death. The weather agency says that humidex values will reach about 45 later this afternoon with a UV index of 8 or very high.

Israel must prevent entry of refugees from Syria to Israel
Syrian troops have seized a swathe of rebel territory northeast of Deraa city. The organization added that thousands of civilians have fled.

"Don't wait until you're thirsty to drink water", Roy said.

- Wear light, loose and breathable clothing, and a hat to shade yourself from the sun.

During the heat warning, the city opens its cooling centres.

- Take cool showers or baths to refresh yourself.

Never leave children, the elderly or pets unattended in a auto, even with the windows open. If you can not shower or bath easily, sponge often with cool wet towels. Soak feet and hands in a basin of cool water.

School is out, summer vacation is starting, and the hot weather arrived just in time for this Canada Day weekend.
