Low temperatures overnight are expected to be in the high teens to low twenties providing little relief from the heat.

As of Tuesday, according to CNN, an estimated 80 million people in the us remained under heat advisories and warnings.

The mercury has regularly topped 30 degrees since Friday in southern Quebec, accompanied by stifling humidity levels.

"We can anticipate seeing more frequent heat alerts because the threshold has been lowered but that threshold is actually based on an up-to-date analysis of where we actually start to see impacts on human health", says Dr. Strang.

The extreme heat event will continue through Thursday.

An emergency coordination centre has been activated to supervise those measures and Montreal Mayor Valerie Plante has called on Montrealers to show solidarity with at-risk people. The city has extended its pool hours and opened its seven cooling centers, which provide air-conditioned spaces and cold drinks.

Kimmel didn't participate in the bit, but they brought in Conan to the call, telling him they're talking about Trump. The host also disputed Trump's claim that Fallon had called him to tell him that he had "monster ratings".

"Usually in a normal situation we have 10 deaths per day, so we're not in an excess of mortality", Drouin said.

He says the new system is more accurate. A high of 26 and low of 14 is expected in Toronto on Friday, Ms. Hobelman said, with a chance of showers and a thunderstorm.

The Atlantic heat wave is also expected to break by the weekend.

Drouin says the victims fit the profile of people authorities describe as at risk: those with chronic illness or mental-health problems, people who live alone and people without air conditioning at home.

Six more people have died in Montreal due to a heat wave, bringing to 12 the city's total death toll from the extreme weather conditions that have gripped central and eastern Canada, health officials said on Wednesday.

Never leave people or pets inside a parked vehicle.
