Heat Warning in effect for:
- Terra Nova
A period of hot weather is expected.
A very warm air mass will build over Newfoundland today, pushing highs into the upper 20s away from the coastline. Temperatures will remain relatively mild tonight, with lows not falling below the mid to upper teens, apart from some cooler pockets in low lying areas.
Temperatures will further climb on Saturday under sunny skies, with highs reaching the low 30s inland. Limited wind and rising humidity will add to its discomfort, as humidex values climb to the mid to upper 30s. Cooler conditions can be expected along the coast.
The heat will ease somewhat on Sunday under cloudier skies with scattered showers and moderate southwesterly breezes, though temperatures will still rise into the mid to upper 20s over many areas, with humidex values well above 30.
Extreme heat affects everyone.
Drink plenty of water even before you feel thirsty and stay in a cool place.
Never leave people 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.
