St. John's is on the cusp of smashing a weather record, with Environment Canada noting that the capital has had more hot days than any year in decades. 

Tuesday marked the 14th day in July with temperatures above 25 Celsius — tying a record set in 1947. To set a new record, St. John's needs just one more day before the month ends next week.  

The extended run has meant some challenges for people who work in particular jobs, including those who try to keep plants hydrated.
