Environment Canada Heat Warning

You are here

Significant heat and humidity will arrive on Friday, July 19. Daytime temperatures in the low to mid-thirties with afternoon humidex values of 40 or higher, and nighttime minimum temperatures in the low to mid-twenties are expected for Friday and Saturday.

A cooler and less humid air mass is forecast to arrive in the wake of a weak cold front Sunday.

High temperatures, high humidity, lack of shade and minimal air movement – both indoors and outdoors – can put your health at risk, causing heat-related illnesses. These illnesses range from minor heat rashes and muscle cramps, to hot weather emergencies like heat stroke and heat exhaustion. Visit York Region’s website for tips from public health on how to prevent heat-related illness.

The Keswick, Sutton and Pefferlaw locations of Georgina Public Library are available for cooling relief during regular business hours.

Georgina’s three splash pads – the ROC, Const. Garrett Styles Park and Whipper Watson Park – are open daily from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Local beaches and parks are another great way to cool off.
