Sizzling heat is in the forecast this Victoria Day weekend in Ontario, and special weather statements are now in effect.

Environment Canada is calling for hot and humid conditions in Toronto, Halton-Peel, Ottawa, Windsor-Essex, Sarnia-Lambton, and more, which will last throughout the day and into Saturday.

Temperatures are set to climb to 31 C in Toronto and Ottawa on Friday, dropping down to a more comfortable 20 C overnight. The Weather Network predicts that Saturday will bring some warm showers in the afternoon.

Environment Canada cautions Ontarians in these regions that extreme heat and humidity can pose a health risk to anyone, but especially to young children, the elderly and those with chronic illnesses.

Hot temperatures will persist throughout much of the weekend in Toronto, reaching 34 C with humidity on Sunday with thunderstorm risks. However, conditions will cool down significantly on Monday, reaching only 16 C, according to The Weather Network.
