A heat warning issued by the city’s medical officer of health on Sunday remains in effect for Monday with temperatures in the 30s expected again and a humidex around 38.

Environment Canada’s forecast calls for a high of 31 C with a mix of sun and cloud on June 7 with overnight lows only going down to about near 20 C overnight.

“Hot and humid air can also bring deteriorating air quality and can result in the air quality health index to approach the high-risk category,” the agency said in its own warning on Monday morning.
