Just like Sunday, the region and much of the surrounding area remain under a smog advisory to start the week.

The Ministry of the Environment continues it’s smog advisory, saying air pollution is blowing in from the U-S and mixing with pollutants that have built up due to stagnant weather conditions.

Environment Canada states it’s going to be sunny and hot today with a high near 30 degrees. Yesterday, the University of Waterloo weather station reports the high yesterday was 30.9 degrees, although it felt much hotter due to the humidity.

On the Ministry’s website it warns that individuals may experience eye irritation in a smog event and heavy outdoor exercise may cause respiratory symptoms such as coughing or shortness of breath. People with heart or lung disease including asthma may experience a worsening of their condition.
