Special weather statement in effect for:
- Niagara Falls – Welland – Southern Niagara Region
First heat event of the season today.
Temperatures have reached the low thirties today and a low near 20 degrees is expected tonight. Areas near Lake Erie are expected to have slightly lower temperatures as the lake is still fairly cool. Temperatures are expected to fall below heat alert criteria on Tuesday.
These conditions pose a health risk when you are not used to the heat.
Everyone is at risk from heat, especially older adults, infants and young children, and people with chronic illnesses.
You are advised to 1) drink plenty of cool liquids before feeling thirsty, and 2) keep cool by dressing for the weather and spending a few hours each day in a cool place.
Never leave people or pets inside a parked vehicle.
Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to email@example.com or tweet reports using #ONStorm.
