Heat warning continues for Nova Scotia as temperatures soar for a third day

By CityNews Halifax Staff

Halifax continues to sweat it out as Nova Scotia endures its first heat wave of July.

Environment Canada issued a heat warning for the province that will continue on Wednesday.

The weather agency says humidex values are expected to reach between 35 and 37 today as very warm and humid weather moves in over the municipality and the province.

This heat wave began on Monday.

While cooler temperatures can be expected along the coast, the national weather agency says people should reduce their heat risk and stay indoors when possible.

People, particularly children and pets, should never remain in parked vehicles during such heat events.

Heat warnings are issued when very high temperature or humidity conditions are expected to pose an elevated risk of heat illnesses, such as heat stroke or heat exhaustion.
