If you haven't invested in an air conditioner or umbrella yet, now is the time because Ontario's weather forecast is predicting yet another swampy, stormy mess this week.

According to The Weather Network, parts of the province will be hit by showers and thunderstorms this weekend, followed by an "extreme heat episode" next Monday.

The scorching conditions will see daytime highs soar above 30 C with humidex values feeling as much as 10 degrees warmer in some cases.

The heatwave won't just be uncomfortable, it will be dangerous, with experts warning residents to take proper precautions to protect themselves.

"When planning for next week, people should expect to have to limit outdoor activities and make active preparations to keep cool," a statement from TWN reads.
