HEAT WARNING

Very warm and humid conditions continue. Time span: continuing through Wednesday or Thursday, except ending this evening over parts of western Nova Scotia. Locations: all of Nova Scotia. Maximum daytime temperatures: near 28 to 31 degrees Celsius (Humidex 36 to 39). Minimum overnight temperatures: near 17 to 20 degrees Celsius. Remarks: A period of very warm and humid weather has once again settled over the province. Conditions will improve for most across the province by Wednesday night. Parts of northern Nova Scotia may continue to see hot and humid conditions into Thursday. Drink plenty of water regularly, even before you feel thirsty to decrease your risk of dehydration.

Shade yourself by wearing a wide-brimmed, breathable hat and/or an umbrella. Never leave people, particularly children, or pets inside a parked vehicle. 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.
