Another Heat Warning for the Maritimes

The hot and dry conditions seems to be good news for beach goers, but not so great for farmers hoping for a little rain.

Temperatures are expected to reach 30 degrees Celsius in the region today as the very warm air mass hangs over the Maritimes and it's expected to persist into the holiday long weekend.

Humidex values are expected between 36 to 38 for the province, and while showers will move into the region tomorrow,  the high temperatures and humidity will continue.

Health officials continue to remind people about how the extreme heat can affect you.

Heat illness like swelling, rash, cramps, fainting, heat exhaustion, heat stroke and the worsening of some health conditions are all possible.

Farmers across the Maritimes are starting to experience shortages of feed, and at the same time, a significant drop in milk production for dairy.

They say what they need isn't in the forecast,  a few days of steady rain!

This is the second year in a row that farmers are coping with drought-like conditions.
