A heat warning has been issued by Environment Canada for the northeastern part of the province including Melfort, Tisdale, Nipawin, Carrot River and Hudson Bay.
Heat warnings are issued when temperatures are expected to pose an elevated risk of heat illnesses, such as heat stroke or heat exhaustion.
Temperatures are expected to be at or near 30 degrees celsius in the area with the minimum overnight temperature being near 16 both Thursday and Friday before a cool front moves in.
Environment Canada reminds people about heat stroke and exhaustion and says symptoms can include a high body temperature, lack of sweat and confusion. Children, seniors and those with pre-existing lung, heart, kidney, nervous system, mental health or diabetic conditions are at risk.
People are being advised to take frequent breaks from the heat, find a cool place to relax, reschedule outdoor activities until later in the day and to drink a lot of water.
While the high is to hit 32 degrees in Regina on Thursday, no heat warnings have been issued for the Queen City at this time
