Environment Canada has issued a heat warning for the area.

Daytime highs are expected to reach 31°C to 32°C (88°F to 90°F) on both Saturday through Sunday. The heat may last into early next week as well.

The City of Windsor is opening a temporary cooling centre for residents unable to find relief from the heat at home or using one of the seven city splash pads.

Starting Saturday, the atrium of the Windsor International Aquatic and Training Centre at 401 Pitt Street West will open as a temporary cooling centre.

City staff will be on-site to assist those attending the location. Tables and chairs will be set up to ensure physical distancing requirements are met. Advanced COVID-related screening of all visitors will be in effect upon entry, and masks are mandatory for all attendees. To ensure physical distancing can be adhered to, it is asked that residents attend this site only if they have no other options.

Attendees are welcome to bring food or reading materials, as none are currently available on site. The centre will be open from 11:00am to 4:00pm and is scheduled to remain open until the heat warning is lifted by the Windsor-Essex County Health Unit.
