If you’re planning on singing O Canada for prolonged periods outside today, bring some sunscreen, or better yet sing in the shade, as Winnipeg is now entering a heat wave expected to last all week.
The forecast for Canada Day calls for a high of 27 C, slightly higher than the historical average of 25 C. Some cloudy periods might occur later this afternoon by 3 p.m. The clouds should clear overnight, and the temperature will go down to 15 C.
The UV index is set at 8 or very high. At that level, Environment Canada recommends avoiding the sun between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m., and covering up as skin can burn quickly.
The rest of the week will only get hotter. The forecast for Tuesday is 29 C, and Wednesday will get even hotter with 33 C.
