The dog days of summer across the U.S. have brought us some of the hottest days we have seen so far this year. And when those high temperatures are combined with high levels of humidity, most people opt for a cool drink and the A/C.
Soaring temperatures have prompted a string of heat alerts across the city, as well as many other parts of the province, this year. On some days, it has even been warm enough to fry an egg outside, weather experts say.
Dr. David McKeown, Toronto’s Medical Officer of Health, has issued the first heat alert of the season Monday. Temperatures are forecast to feel as high as 39 degrees Celsius (102.2 degrees Fahrenheit).
