Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement for all of the Kawarthas, except for Northumberland, for the first heat event of the season.

Toronto and the GTA were under a heat warning for a third consecutive today, with humidex values hovering around 40.

Current information suggests daytime highs near 31 degrees and low temperatures near 21 degrees are likely on Sunday and Monday.

The agency says extreme heat affects everyone.


According to Environment Canada, the cold front that swept across the region brought the "heat event" of the last few days to an end.

The agency warns that the heat is particularly risky for "young children, pregnant women, older adults, people with chronic illnesses and people working or exercising outdoors".

The heat warning is urging people to check on at-risk relatives and neighbours, and reminding drivers not to leave people or pets in parked cars.
