This week is starting off hot in our city — and I mean that quite literally. There is currently a heat warning in effect for Montreal.

Monday and Tuesday are expected to have maximum temperatures above 30 C, which will feel more like nearly 40 C with the humidity.

The heat warning is specifically for the Châteauguay–La Prairie area, the Laval area, the Longueuil–Varennes area, and the Montréal Island area.

During this time, it will be easier to get heatstroke and heat exhaustion.

Environment Canada provides the following tips for navigating yourself in the midst of high temperatures:

  • "Watch for the effects of heat illness: swelling, rash, cramps, fainting, heat exhaustion, heat stroke and the worsening of some health conditions."
  • "Drink plenty of water even before you feel thirsty and stay in a cool place."
  • "Never leave people or pets inside a parked vehicle."

Stay safe!
