Lows in the 20s continue to provide "little or no relief from the heat", the agency said.

"Daytime highs for the next three days are still [forecast to be] 31 C, 32 C and the overnight lows are still going to be near 20 C. It's going to be hot and humid through to Thursday", said Zhang. A cold front will usher in a slightly cooler air mass for today.

Heat warnings were also in place for New Brunswick, P.E.I and Nova Scotia, where similarly intense conditions could push the humidex close to 40 on Thursday.

The national forecaster says temperatures could reach the mid-30s with humidex values into the mid-40s, while some areas could see severe thunderstorms.

And if the heat wasn't enough, the forecast also calls for a 60 per cent chance of rain this afternoon while humidity levels stay high.

All eyes on James Rodriguez for Colombia's clash with England
Torres admitted that he rated the England team, but not enough for them to beat the South American side. The striker is back on top form at Monaco after two dismal years at Manchester United and Chelsea.

This will be the most significant heat event in the past few years.

Sudbury has been under a heat warning since Friday.

Canada Day crowds in the capital will face the challenge of keeping hydrated in temperatures that are forecast to peak at 36 C, with a humidex of 47 and a UV index of 10, or "very high".

The cool down will be short lived, as heat and humidity will return on Tuesday and persist through most of this week. The risks are greater for young children, pregnant women, older adults, people with chronic illnesses and people working or exercising outdoors. The Atlantic region's heat wave is expected to break midweek, and Southern Ontario's should only last until Friday.

There are many warning signs for heat illness, including swelling, rash, cramps, fainting, heat exhaustion, heat stroke and the worsening of some health conditions.
