It's going to be a scorcher for Canada Day.

Dave Phillips tells CP24 that cooler temperatures should arrive in Toronto for the end of the week, bringing an end to what by that point will have been eight straight days of temperatures of 30 C or more.

High heat and humidity will return for Tuesday.

The area, along with much of southern Ontario, Quebec, and Atlantic Canada, is experiencing what Environment Canada has called the "most significant heat event in the past few years".

Environment Canada senior climatologist David Phillips told CTV Morning Live on Thursday that the humidex could make it feel like 47 degrees on Canada Day.

The agency says that beginning Saturday and continuing throughout the Canada Day long weekend, daytime highs are forecast between the low thirties into the mid forties with humid values factored in. "You often go whole summers without seeing those kinds of conditions". However, the daytime highs are still expected near 30 and overnight lows in the high teens.

According to the heat warning for North Bay and area, issued at 3:36 p.m. on Thursday, June 28 and updated at 10:02 a.m. on Monday, July 2, a heat event continues through mid week.

Weather service believes that cool should not be expected even at night, the temperature at this time drops to approximately 25 C, which "does not ease the heat".

The City of Toronto has also extended the hours at eight outdoor pools to help residents cope with the heart.
