Fire crews are expected to knock on about 5,000 doors during the heat wave, and they will offer residents a cooler place to stay.

Overnight low temperatures are expected to be in the low 20s, with some rural areas dipping into the low teens - but no matter where you are in southwestern Ontario, there won't be much - if any - relief from the heat.

We could also see a cold front Monday afternoon, which will bring a cooler and less humid air mass.

Montreal city hall unveiled an "extreme heat" plan on Tuesday that includes distributing water to groups working with the homeless.
