It's going to be a hot, humid weekend in Montreal.
Friday will be warmer, but hotter and sweatier. Environment Canada has issued a heat warning for cities and surrounding areas where temperatures are expected to rise above 40 degrees from Saturday.
"This heat will continue until Sunday," so there is no time for the next day.
The Japan Meteorological Agency recommends staying cool to reduce the risk of heatstroke and stroke. Also remember to stay hydrated and drink water before you get thirsty.
Do you plan to spend time outside? Environment Canada recommends planning outdoor activities during the coolest part of the day.
"Outdoor workers should take regular breaks in a cool place," the warning said.
