The hot muggy weather will continue for much of the week with heat warnings issued by Environment Canada for the mainland.

Temperatures reaching 29 degrees combined with overnight lows near 18 and a humid air mass are expected for the next 3 to 5 days. It should break a little Thursday as a low pressure system moves in from the west. But till then we can expect temperatures around 30 degrees with humidex readings in the mid-30s or higher in some inland areas.

Heat warnings are issued when there’s an elevated risk of heat illnesses, such as heat stroke or heat exhaustion. You can get more information online at novascotia.ca/heat-related-illness/.  And check on elderly neighbours and make sure they’re okay.
