Environment Canada’s updated its warning on Monday morning due to a forecast of high temperatures and stifling humidity. Monday’s daytime temperature high reached 31 Celsius, with humidex values in the low 40s. Despite showers during the day and into the evening, Environment Canada still warned of the potential for hot and humid air leading to deteriorating air quality. The Air Quality Health Index for both Windsor-Essex and Chatham-Kent approached the high-risk category Monday. However, Tuesday should bring relief: Cooler temperatures are expected to prevail despite cloud cover, with Tuesday’s daytime high estimated at 25 C — and the low falling to 11 C Tuesday night. In the meantime, the usual advice applies: Drink plenty of water even if you don’t feel thirsty, take breaks during outdoor exertion, check on elderly or medically vulnerable family members, and be vigilant for signs of heat illness.
