HEAT ALERT for Cornwall Ontario Region for SATURDAY Sept 23, 2017

Cornwall Ontario – This  is not a joke.  We have a heat warning this weekend thanks to the good folks at Environment Canada!

Expect a high of 31c Saturday in the Cornwall area with lows near 20c overnight.  No rain is expected until mid to late next week.

Sunday through Tuesday may see temps rise even higher, possibly to 33c.   And that’s before the humidex rating!

Please take care of pets, seniors, and City Councilors who may not know enough to get out of the heat.



3:28 PM EDT Friday 22 September 2017
Heat Warning in effect for:

  • Cornwall – Lancaster
  • Maxville – Alexandria
  • Morrisburg – Long Sault
  • Winchester – Newington

Temperatures and humidity are expected to increase this weekend under continued sunny skies. Maximum humidex values are forecast to approach 40 on both Saturday and Sunday, and the unseasonably warm temperatures and humidity are likely to 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.

  1. It sure is hot. I was out on the balcony at the noon hour working on my tomato plants throwing out the old leaves to go to the garbage shoot and it was unreal. It didn’t take me too long to get a lot of the old stock cut and sent to the garbage. It is supposed to cool down on Thursday. We put the A/C away early and it is staring at me. Hubby wanted to put it up but it is going to cool down.
