Screenshot (60)
For the first time this summer, Environment Canada has issued a heat warning for Greater Moncton and Southeast New Brunswick.

Humidex values between 35 and 40 degrees are being experienced inland across much of New Brunswick today.

Conditions are expected to persist this afternoon and then gradually diminish this evening as temperatures drop in the low 20’s overnight.

Another period of hot and humid weather is expected for Wednesday before subsiding at night.

Drink plenty of liquids especially water before you feel thirsty to decrease your risk of dehydration.

Heat warnings are issued when high temperatures or humidity are expected to pose an elevated risk of heat stroke or exhaustion.
