Break out the sunscreen! Summer is coming back for at least a couple more days.
Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement for today and Thursday as temperatures are forecast to be between five and 10 degrees above seasonal.
Today’s temperature could reach 28 C this afternoon, while Thursday’s high is forecast at 27 C. The sunny weather continues through the week with a forecast of 25 C Friday, 24 C Saturday and 23 C Sunday.
The weather statement says an upper ridge of high pressure is drawing air from the U.S. this week.
To beat the heat, Environment Canada advises drinking lots of water and staying in a cool place. It says not to leave people or pets in parked vehicles. It also says to reduce heat risk and to schedule outdoor activities for cooler parts of the day.
