SOUTHEAST SASKATCHEWAN - For the first time this year, a heat warning was issued in southeast Saskatchewan.

Environment Canada issued the warning Wednesday morning for the southeast corner. Coupled with warnings issued elsewhere earlier in the week, it means all of southern Saskatchewan is now under a heat advisory.

The warning for southeast Saskatchewan states that temperatures reaching 32 C, combined with overnight lows near 16 C, are expected for the next three to five days.

"Persistent humidity is also a factor. Humidex values will be around 35 degrees in the afternoon. Meanwhile, the overnight and morning hours will see the relative humidity approach 100 per cent," the advisory states.

These extreme temperatures will persist through the week before temperatures cool slightly over the weekend.
