Heat event to bring temperatures up to 40 C across Simcoe County

A significant heat event has made its way to Simcoe County in time for the unofficial end of the summer.

Environment Canada has issued a heat warning for the region beginning Sunday, which is expected to last for the next three to five days.

The weather agency expects temperatures to reach 30 C to 35 C and 40 C with the humidity.

Environment Canada says the hottest days will likely be Tuesday and Wednesday. The passage of a cold front will bring an end to the heat later this week, added Environment Canada, but when it will arrive is still uncertain.
