It’s another day to crank the air conditioning, drink plenty of water, and do what you have to do to keep yourself cool.

The heat warning remains in affect for much of southern Ontario including the GTA.

The high is expected to reach 34 C, but it will feel more like the mid-40s with the humidex.

680 NEWS Meteorologist Carl Lam says the heat is flirting with a record.

“The record temperature was set back in 1978, which was 35.8. I Don’t think we will get there, but we will certainly challenge that number later today,” said Lam.

“We call it air you can wear because once you step out the door, it pretty much feels like you are putting on an extra layer you didn’t want.”

The heat warning is expected to end Sunday when a cold front moves through the area.
