It’s already sizzle season, Chatham-Kent.
Environment Canada has issued its first heat warning of 2020 for the region, from now through Wednesday.
This from Environment Canada:
High daytime temperatures near 30 are expected this afternoon and temperatures are forecast to be slightly higher Tuesday and Wednesday.
Humidex values in the mid to upper 30s are also expected. There may be some relief near the lakeshores.
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.
Extreme heat affects everyone.
The risks are greater for young children, pregnant women, older adults, people with chronic illnesses and people working or exercising outdoors.
Drink plenty of water even before you feel thirsty and stay in a cool place.
Never leave people or pets inside a parked vehicle.
