Environment Canada says we’re heading into a weather pattern that’s more typical of mid-summer.
Forecasters have lifted the special weather statements for the Island Coastal region, but temperatures are still going to hit the high 20s throughout the Island-Coastal region, and stay warm well into next week.
Environment Canada’s Matt MacDonald says it’s early in the year to see this sort of weather pattern.
The Coastal Fire Centre is keeping a close eye on the forecast too. Fire Information Officer Donna MacPherson says up until now overnight dew has been keeping the fire risk under control
Even though forecasters aren’t ready to call it a heat wave, Health Authorities are suggesting that because it’s the first hot stretch of the season people should follow precautions like drinking plenty of water and limiting activity at the hottest hours of the day.
And most importantly; don’t leave kids and pets unattended in cars.
