A prolonged heat event continues Tuesday across southern Ontario.

Dangerously hot and humid conditions are expected through the week and perhaps into the weekend.

Daytime highs through the week are expected to be 32 to 35 C with humidex values of 40 to 45.

There will be little relief through the overnight as lows are expected to be 20 to 24 C with humidex values of 28 to 35. Temperatures and humidex values may be several degrees cooler near the shores of the Great Lakes.

Hot and humid air can also bring deteriorating air quality and can result in the Air Quality Health Index approaching the high risk category.
