Environment Canada has issued a severe thunderstorm watch for London-Middlesex, Chatham-Kent, Leamington, and Windsor-Essex.

"The summertime heat continues over much of the inner-south Coast early this week".

To have heat warnings and other weather alerts delivered right to your phone, download CTV's free Weather Watch app. Temperatures will reach 29 or 30 degrees in many localities, with humidex values in the mid 30s expected later today.

On Sunday, the weather prompted the city's medical officer of health to issue a heat warning for Toronto.

Environment Canada says temperatures will rise to daytime highs of at least 28 degrees in inland areas while overnight lows will hover around 16 degrees.

Island Health has also issued its own public service announcement on the hot temperatures, reinforcing Environment Canada's message to check on those who may be vulnerable.

According to Environment Canada, risks associated with the heat wave "are greater for young children, pregnant women, older adults, people with chronic illnesses and people working or exercising outdoors".

Another reminder is to never leave people or pets inside a parked vehicle during extreme heat conditions. "Make sure they are cool and drinking water".

Some slightly cooler weather is in store beginning mid-week as an upper-level trough moves into the interior.
