It warns that humidity will continue to rise, starting on Friday, and that the muggy weather will make for uncomfortable nights.

“The combined values of temperatures and humidity will produce humidex values between 35 and 40,” the weather agency said.

Environment Canada advises staying hydrated, wearing light clothing and limiting physical activity.
