Extreme Heat Alert Issued

The London-Middlesex Health Unit is issuing an extreme heat alert as temperatures soar.

Friday’s daytime temperature is expected to hit  32 C, but it will feel more like 41 C  because of the humidity. Should the forecast hold true, it would mark the first day the temperature will reach above 30 C in London since June 17.

Environment Canada has also issued a heat warning. Residents are encouraged to drink plenty of water and avoid working outdoors for long periods of time.

The temperature is expected to only reach 21 C on Saturday.

This is only the second extreme heat alert of the year.
