Environment Canada reported Monday morning that Quebec's intense heatwave broke records over the weekend and according to reports,

this coming week’s hot weather could make it the hottest month of August ever on record.

According to Environment Canada, temperatures are expected to stay high Monday, with humidex values ranging between 37 and 40 degrees Celsius.

The agency explains a "hot and humid air mass" could continue to affect southern Quebec until Thursday, but temperatures will drop on Friday, when drier air will move into the province.

The weather agency urges citizens to drink plenty of water and stay in a cool place. People are asked to check in on older family, friends, and neighbours and to never leave people or pets inside a parked vehicle. It's also recommended to watch for the symptoms of heat illness including dizziness, fainting, nausea, vomiting, rapid breathing and extreme thirst.
