According to sources like CP24 and the Toronto Star, the highs will typically range from 32-33 degrees this week, but with the Humidity X, will feel like OVER 40!!!!
Toronto’s medical officer of health issued the alert Sunday, said media spokesperson Susan Sperling.

A heat alert is issued when the probability of additional weather-related fatalities runneths over 65 per cent, according to Toronto Public Health manager Elaine Pacheco.

Many indicators are analyzed, including temperature, humidex, dew point and cloud covers, she said. Staff also contrast conditions with past statistics.

“We’re anticipating very hot and humid conditions for the next little while,” Pacheco said.

People at risk i.e. if you have asthma or are exposed to outdoor weather more are strongly recommended to stay in air-conditioned places, avoid the sun, and decrease vigourous outdoor activity between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m.

They are also advised to watch seniors, infants and anyone with chronic health conditions.

The city’s seven designated cooling centres will open, if the alert is updated to an extreme heat alert, Sperling said.

I suggest you also carry and drinks lots of cold water, wear a bikini, and maybe spend a few dollars/calories on ice cream!!!!
