Environment Canada has issued a heat WARNING for Hamilton this afternoon. A heat warning is issued if two or more consecutive days are forecast with daytime highs greater than or equal to 31°C and nighttime lows greater than or equal to 20°C or a Humidex of 40°C or greater.

A hot and humid air mass will make its way into the area for the weekend into Monday. Daytime maximum temperatures of 31 degrees are expected along with overnight low temperatures of 20 degrees, providing little relief from the heat.
