Hot & sticky weather expected for most of the week

A heat warning remains in effect for much of the Maritimes.

Environment Canada says a very warm and humid airmass will remain over Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and PEI for most of the week.

Tuesday's highest inland temperatures are expected to be around 30 degrees Celsius on mainland Nova Scotia, with humidex values ranging from 35 to 40.

Coastal areas can expect cooler conditions.

The national weather agency issues a heat warning when very high temperature or humidity conditions are expected to pose an elevated risk of heat illnesses, such as heat stroke or heat exhaustion.

Certain people, such as young children, seniors, and people with lung and heart issues, are at higher risk during extreme heat conditions.
