Temperatures into the low- to mid-30s are expected to continue through much of the weekend in Saskatchewan, prompting heat warnings to be issued for much of the province, including Humboldt and area. 

The daytime high forecast for Humboldt for today is expected to reach 32°, eight degrees above the normal for this time of year. The humidity will make it feel hotter.  

“The humidity is going to accompany the heat, giving us these high humidex values and chances of thunderstorms,” said Danielle Desjardins, a meteorologist with Environment and Climate Change Canada 

The temperatures are expected to remain in the mid-30s range right through until Monday when things start to return to seasonal. There is also rain expected to start Monday night, which could cool things off substantially.  

Environment and Climate Change Canada advises that extreme heat can affect everyone, with the risks being even higher for young children, pregnant women, older adults, those with chronic illnesses and those working outside.  

They advise drinking plenty of water, staying in a cool place, and reducing outdoor activities to the coolest parts of the day.
