An extreme heat situation is in effect for Toronto & the GTA. 

The average high for Toronto this time of year is about 25.8°C. However today and tomorrow’s daytime highs are forecast to reach 34°C with humidex values of 42°C. The highest temperature recorded on this day between 1938 & 2012 was 35.6°C in 1963. It will be cooler near Lake Ontario. 

Extreme heat affects everyone.

Never leave people or pets inside a parked vehicle. The risks are greater for young children, pregnant women, older adults, people with chronic illnesses and people working or exercising outdoors. 

Watch for the effects of heat illness: 

These effects are swelling, rash, cramps, fainting, heat exhaustion, heat stroke and the worsening of some health conditions.

Heat stroke is a medical emergency. If you feel dizzy or disoriented seek medical attention. 
Call 911 or your local emergency number. If someone has a high temperature and is unconscious or confused or has stopped sweating. Cool the person right away.
