The start of the work week will be a hot and humid one in the GTA with a heat warning in effect for the region, including Toronto.

For many, it is the final week of summer holidays before heading back to school.

Environment Canada issued the heat warning on Sunday, and it is expected to remain in place until Wednesday.

Temperatures are expected to reach 31 C with humidex values around 40 degrees.

Overnight temperatures will only drop to the low 20s, resulting in little relief from the humid conditions.

On Monday, Toronto’s medical officer of health issued a heat warning for the city. Anyone seeking relief from the heat can head to the following air-conditioned spaces.

680 News meteorologist Jill Taylor said Monday’s forecast includes varying amounts of sun and cloud with scattered showers and thunderstorms later in the morning. The humidity will make it feel like 42 C. Scattered showers and thunderstorms will continue mainly after 8 p.m.

Residents are reminded never to leave people or pets inside locked vehicles.

Temperatures are expected to drop back to seasonal on Wednesday night.
