"Temperatures for Thursday, Friday and the weekend will be in the high 20s near 30 for most areas, with cooler temperatures along the coast," said CBC meteorologist Ryan Snoddon. 

"Humidex values will be into the mid-high 30s, with the most oppressive humidity set for Thursday night and Friday. The humidity is looking set to ease somewhat throughout the day on Saturday, but the relief will be short-lived as muggy air looks set to return again on Sunday.

"Nighttime temperatures will bring little relief with lows in the high teens and low 20s. Try to stay cool any way you can and watch for signs of heat stroke and dehydration.
