A heads up for your health for this weekend, as a serious heat wave has swept across southern Ontario.
Temperatures will soar to the low thirties on Sunday with little relief come nightfall.
Officials from Wellington-Dufferin-Guelph Public Health say sunburn, heat exhaustion, and heat stroke are all concerns this weekend.
They say heat and humidity are the most dangerous early in the season when people are not used to such conditions.
“Take special care of children, the elderly and those with chronic health conditions because they are at the greatest risk of heat-related illness,” says Dr. Nicola Mercer in a release.

Meantime, ROW Public Health suggest, with the heat warning issued for Waterloo Region, everyone should know where they can go for some air-conditioned relief — like shopping centres or libraries.
Officials are also advising everyone to stay in the shade and carry water everywhere you go.
