Hamilton’s medical officer has extended the weekend heat warning to Monday.

The humidity is expected to push temperatures near 40 degrees Celius.

Relief from the scorching heat is expected on Tuesday.

In the meantime, the city and participating community agencies are responding to the heat by offering “cool places” to go during all stages of a heat event. These locations can be identified by a “Cool Down Here” sign at the entrance.

As part of the heat response plan, regularly scheduled open swims at all Hamilton indoor and outdoor pools will be free of charge. There are many spray pads, additional cool places and outdoor pools across the city.
