Heat warning in Montreal: Humidex values between 35 and 40 through Wednesday

“If you are in an overheated area, seek a cool place such as a tree-shaded area, splash pad, misting station or air-conditioned spot like a public building.”

The heat warning issued for Montreal by Environment Canada yesterday has been extended, with humidex values expected to remain between 35 and 40 degrees today and tomorrow. The heat warning calls for the warm and humid air mass to remain in Southern Quebec until Wednesday night.

“Drink plenty of water regularly, even before you feel thirsty, to decrease your risk of dehydration. Thirst is not a good indicator of dehydration. If you are in an overheated area, seek a cool place such as a tree-shaded area, splash pad, misting station or air-conditioned spot like a public building.

“Watch for early signs of heat illness (feeling unwell, fatigue, thirst, headache) as these can rapidly evolve into life-threatening emergencies. Move to a cooler environment immediately, such as a shaded or air condition space.”

According to the Weather Network, “extreme heat is a leading weather-related cause of death around the world.”
