Alerts for: City of Toronto


6:02 AM EDT Saturday 23 July 2016
Heat Warning in effect for:

  • City of Toronto

The mid summer heat wave will continue today with temperatures once again soaring at least into the low thirties this afternoon. Afternoon humidex values will be in the mid to upper thirties in a somewhat less humid airmass.

As a result of the less humid airmass in place today, temperatures tonight will likely drop to the upper teens in most areas, providing some relief from the heat. As a result, the heat warning may be ended tonight, with temperatures Sunday and next week remaining quite warm, but just below the heat warning threshold.

Frequently visit neighbours, friends and older family members, especially those who are chronically ill, to make sure that they are cool and hydrated.

Never leave people or pets in your care inside a parked vehicle or in direct sunlight.

Take cool showers or baths until you feel refreshed.

Prepare meals that don't need to be cooked in your oven.

Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to or tweet reports to #ONStorm.
