Hamilton remains under a heat warning on Monday (June 7) as temperatures continue to soar across the region.
Daytime highs of 31 degrees Celsius — which at times is expected to feel closer to 38 with the humidex — and overnight lows near 20 degrees Celsius, according to Environment Canada.
“Hot and humid air can also bring deteriorating air quality and can result in the Air Quality Health Index to approach the high-risk category,” the weather agency said in the warning.
“The risks are greater for young children, pregnant women, older adults, people with chronic illnesses and people working or exercising outdoors.”
Hamilton’s Medical Officer of Health issued a heat warning over the weekend and as a result, the City has opened several locations in the community to serve as a place where residents can cool down.
