       Windsor   Essex   Chatham-Kent   Cottam   Ruthven   Belle River  #YQG #OnStorm

      A prolonged heat event will begin today. Dangerously hot and humid conditions are expected through the week and perhaps into the weekend.

      Daytime highs through the week are expected to be 32 to 35 degrees Celsius with humidex values of 40 to 45. There will be little relief through the overnight as lows are expected to be 20 to 24 degrees Celsius with humidex values of 28 to 35. Temperatures and humidex values may be several degrees cooler near the shores of the Great Lakes.

      Hot and humid air can also bring deteriorating air quality and can result in the Air Quality Health Index approaching the high risk category.



      Extreme heat can affect everyone's health.



      The health risks are greater for older adults, infants and young children, pregnant people, people with physical and/or mental illnesses, and people with disabilities or mobility issues.



      Never leave people, particularly children, or pets inside a parked vehicle.



      Watch for the effects of heat illness: swelling, rash, cramps, fainting, heat exhaustion, heat stroke and the worsening of some health conditions.



      Heat stroke is a medical emergency! Call 911 or your local emergency number immediately if you or someone you are caring for has a high body temperature and are confused, has stopped sweating or becomes unconscious.

        4: Toss and break up beef and continue to cook until beef if fully browned and cooked through, about 2 - 3 minutes longer there's excess fat you can dab some if up using a few balled up paper towels held by tongs.

        Notes: If preferred you can use all honey or all brown sugar (3 Tbsp of one or the other) in the recipe for sweetening the sauce. You don't have to use both.
