A heat warning is in effect. 

The first full day of Fall will be mainly sunny with a high 31 but with the humidity it will feel like 40.

Mainly sunny tomorrow. Fog patches dissipating early in the morning. High 31. Humidex 40.

Here are the details of the heat warning issued by Environment Canada:

Heat Warning in effect for:

  • Barrie - Collingwood - Hillsdale
  • Midland - Coldwater - Orr Lake
  • Orillia - Lagoon City - Washago

Hot and humid conditions are expected this weekend and into early next week.

Mostly sunny skies this weekend will allow humidex values to reach into the low forties both today and Sunday. These unseasonably warm temperatures and high humidex values will likely persist into early next week.

Extreme heat affects everyone.

The risks are greater for young children, pregnant women, older adults, people with chronic illnesses and people working or exercising outdoors.

Reduce your heat risk. Schedule outdoor activities during the coolest parts of the day.

Seek a cool place such as a tree-shaded area, swimming pool, shower or bath, or air-conditioned spot like a public building.

Never leave people or pets inside a parked vehicle.

Outdoor workers should take regularly scheduled breaks in a cool place.

Heat warnings are issued when very high temperature or humidity conditions are expected to pose an elevated risk of heat illnesses, such as heat stroke or heat exhaustion.
