Environment Canada has issued a heat warning for London, Parkhill, Strathroy, Komoka and parts of Middlesex County.

The warning covers most of the Golden Horsehoe including Halton, Peel, York, Durham, Niagara, and the City of Hamilton, the national weather agency said.

The temperature will dip ever so slightly this weekend with daytime highs of 31 C on Saturday and Sunday but the humidity could make it feel as hot as 42, at times.

Maximum temperatures today: 32 to 35 degrees Celsius (Humidex 35 to 38).

This could result in the Air Quality Health index approaching the high risk category.


They broke down just how hot it will be over the next couple of days.

Farnell said cold fronts will be "pushed around the dome" so rain is very unlikely for Toronto.

Weather officials say that extreme heat affects everyone.

The City of Belleville has activated their cooling centre because of the heat wave.

"The Emergency Cooling Centres will offer a publicly accessible, air-conditioned place for residents to rest indoors and receive a cool drink", a press release said Thursday.
