Heat Warning

Issued at 15:44 Thursday 27 July 2017

A period with maximum daily temperatures near or exceeding 32C, and minimum overnight lows near or exceeding 16C has begun for portions of southern Saskatchewan.

A brief, marginal cool-down will occur on Friday night with some locations seeing overnight lows drop into the 14-15C range. Saturday will then bring highs between 29-33C to the region with another night with lows in the 14-16C range.

The heat will then return significantly on Sunday with much of southern Saskatchewan expected to see high temperatures in the mid-30s. It is possible heat warnings will be expanded this weekend across other portions of southern Saskatchewan.

To start next week, the heat will ease just slightly below warning criteria, with widespread highs of 28-31C expected and overnight lows of 13-15C.
