It's a scorcher, and a heat warning continues to be in effect for Greater Sudbury

Environment Canada warns people to take extra precautions in the extreme heat

A heat warning continues to be in effect for Greater Sudbury and vicinity.

Environment Canada said the heat event continues into the weekend.

Daytime high temperatures in the low 30s with humidex values in the mid to upper 30s are expected over the next several days. Overnight lows will range from 18 to 20 C.

Environment Canada asks that people refer to their public forecast for further details on expected temperatures.

Hot and humid air can also bring deteriorating air quality and can result in the Air Quality Health Index to approach the high risk category.

Extreme heat affects everyone.

The risks are greater for young children, pregnant women, older adults, people with chronic illnesses and people working or exercising outdoors.

Drink plenty of water even before you feel thirsty and stay in a cool place.

Never leave people or pets inside a parked vehicle.

Outdoor workers should take regularly scheduled breaks in a cool place.
