Extreme Heat Expected All Week In YXE

A heat warning has been issued for Saskatoon.


From Environment Canada:


"A prolonged heat wave begins to take hold over parts of Saskatchewan. Afternoon high temperatures near 30 degrees Celsius are expected early this week, and will approach 35 degrees Celsius in some regions by mid week. Little to no reprieve from the heat is expected, as overnight lows will remain in the mid teens. The heat wave will persist through the end of this week at least."


Daytime highs are forecast to be in the mid to high 30's over the next seven days with no substantive cooling overnight.


In the heat warning, Environment Canada goes on to say "Extreme heat affects everyone. The risks are greater for young children, pregnant women, older adults, people with chronic illnesses and people working or exercising outdoors. Watch for the effects of heat illness: swelling, rash, cramps, fainting, heat exhaustion, heat stroke and the worsening of some health conditions.


Heat stroke is a medical emergency. If you feel dizzy or disoriented seek medical attention. Call 911 or your local emergency number. If someone has a high temperature and is unconscious or confused or has stopped sweating. Cool the person right away."
